I do like the cycle. And, ironically, it is most satisfying in the beginning. The first pay-offs are the sweetest, because you then know your hunch that you have chosen a profitable overlooked niche was correct, and that your effort is going to pay off. Later on, though you make several times what you did at first, and more in a day than you first made in a week, you get used to it, and it is less sweet.
It is the thrill of seeing the hunch pay off, the slow but inexorably upward graph of earnings that gets people addicted to entrepreneurship, and makes them serial entrepreneurs.
And, so, in an odd way, get-rich-slow schemes can be as or more satisfying than get rich quick schemes!!
Those who sow in tears
will reap with songs of joy.
6 He who goes out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him. Psalm 126.
