Whenever you start something new, you’re like a goldfish. Small, weak and an easy prey.
So don’t start your new thing, whatever it is, in a tank full of sharks.
Start it in an environment you know already. An environment you’re familiar with. Your country. Your city. Or your industry.
Start it in your friend zone.
So you can gain enough experience, skills and confidence to grow into a baby shark before you join the tank full of sharks..
