Whether they’re intrinsically motivated by a sense of fulfilment and accomplishment or they’re extrinsically motivated by financial rewards entrepreneurs will be faced
with situations that require incredible skill and determination to face some of their entrepreneurial challenges.
Hence why it is so important to have a support system in place, for the times that the unexpected situations and problems can become too hard to handle.
There are various forms of moral support systems; it can be a supporti
ve spouse, or group of family or friends.
