Every big company starts small. It seems obvious and even cliché, but often young startups lose sight of this reality. It’s easy to get caught up in the challenges, the hurdles, and the rejection that inevitably comes with starting and growing your own business.
But remember, every big company that exists today started small, started as an idea; some by an individual, some by a small team of creative collaborators. Apple, which just launched their iPhone 5 last week, literally started in Steve Jobs’s parent’s garage. And Facebook, as we all now know, started in a college dormitory.
When you’ve just started your new venture and the passion and excitement feels like it’s wearing out, just remember: every company started small. If your company stays small, then you will only be a part of the most powerful driving force in the economy, small business. But just because the road ahead seems steep and the obstacles insurmountable, doesn’t mean this is the end of the line.
This is the very time to innovate, this is the time to lift up your head, roll up your sleeves, and create new solutions to emerging problems. Then, who knows? Your venture may just become the next big thing.
