The five factors that hold entrepreneurs back

Here's my hypothesis.

Entrepreneurs who set up their company and exited within ten years, achieving financial freedom within that time, followed a specific route through the four distinct stages of the Ten Year Career framework:

  1. Execute
  2. Systemize
  3. Scrutinize
  4. Exit

Entrepreneurs who don’t follow this plan are inhibited along the way by one of five factors, and financial freedom is either never reached or takes longer than ten years. The five factors:

  1. Taking the wrong advice
  2. A lack of clear direction
  3. Following the norm
  4. Becoming stagnant
  5. Being distracted

I’ve interviewed hundreds of entrepreneurs to find this out and I’m now convinced we have the framework for success. I’m so excited to share it with you.
 
If the above matches your experience, tell me how. If the above doesn’t match your experience, tell me how! I’d love to know your story.
