Oh man, can I relate to this.
I left a promising career in a more comfortable, somewhat corporate situation to struggle at entrepreneurship for the last 5 years. While my friends are all VPs and SVPs at their big companies and making fat checks, I’m toiling away in mediocrity in startup land.
And many of my fellow startup founders’ companies are doing well, too. Getting funded, growing, etc.
My ambition is keeping me going, but it’s tough to compare myself to others sometimes.
