It’s really easy to get into the hype of it as you said. Some of it is from what people are seeing on newsfeeds, however perhaps another route has also been with network marketing as well. They pitch a lavish lifestyle and owning a business as well.
From my experiences I moved from network marketing to what I’m doing now because it wasn’t for me. I’ll admit I bought into the hype, but I think that the transition for me was the definitive moment I moved away from being an entrepreneur solely for money and to move towards helping others and adding more to conversations.
