Imagine this: a business owner, giving it their all, toughing it out, and trying to juggle everything at once.
I refer to this entrepreneurial personality type as the “Sufferpreneur.”
Let’s not stop there, let’s keep rolling.
Sufferpreneurs believe in the noble pursuit of hard work, in paying their dues, in saving money by doing it all themselves.
Sounds responsible, right?
Well, it’s a bit like trying to make a sandwich with no bread – it just doesn’t work.
Sufferpreneurs stay up late into the night.
Burning the midnight oil like an overly enthusiastic candle maker.
Trying to learn the latest social media platform or business strategy.
You are a Sufferpreneur if you are working so hard to save your business money that they’re actually costing it a fortune.
Think about it.
Every minute you spend wrestling with admin tasks or wrestling with learning curves like a rodeo cowboy is a minute they could’ve been making a sale or servicing a client.
But don’t just take my word for it.
Let’s dive into the cold, hard stats that back up this Sufferpreneur saga.
70% Solo-Run Businesses: The One-Person Show Dilemma
Continuing our journey, here’s a surprising nugget of information.
Based on a study by SCORE in 2020, a whopping 70% of small businesses are run by just one person.
Yep, that’s like trying to play every instrument in a one-person band!
If you are one of these hardworking business owners, you are taking the “do it yourself” saying to heart.
They’re like a chef trying to cook, serve, and clean all at once!
Something’s bound to spill!
This approach might seem brave.
But it’s like trying to dig a hole with a spoon.
It just makes the tough job of running a business even harder.
It’s a shortcut to being tired all the time.
It keeps their business from growing.
It’s like trying to run a race with tied shoelaces.
Not the best idea, right?
Unmasking the Sufferpreneur: The Power and Pitfalls of the Do-It-All Attitude
Now, I’ve met plenty of folks wearing the Sufferpreneur cape.
And I’ve got to admit, they have their hearts in the right place.
They’re all about that grit, the hustle, the “I got this” attitude.
It’s the classic DIY approach.
They’re convinced they’re saving big bucks by doing everything themselves.
But the funny part is, they’re missing out on a big secret:
Your time is not FREE.
Let’s talk about their strong points.
Man, are they determined.
They’re like those ultra-marathon runners, who won’t stop until they’ve crossed the finish line.
No matter what.
They’re willing to burn the midnight oil.
Dive headfirst into new skills, and tackle every tiny task in their business.
That’s dedication, folks!
But let me tell you, every hero has their weak spot.
And Sufferpreneurs are no different.
Their dedication turns into a trap.
They’re spending hours, maybe even days, on work that could be done by someone else.
Maybe even quicker and better.
It’s like trying to bake a cake when you’re a master chef.
Sure, you can do it, but isn’t your time better spent creating those fancy dishes?
They have this idea in their head that they need to be swimming in cash before they can bring in help.
It’s like saying you won’t buy a map until you’ve reached your destination.
It doesn’t quite add up, does it?
For them, it’s like navigating a maze blindfolded.
And without a clear roadmap, they’re stuck running in circles while the workload piles up.
The bottom line is, to truly break free from the Sufferpreneur cycle, you’ve got to make changes today for a better business tomorrow.
Makes sense, right?

They can take care of those tasks that you dread.

Now, let’s chat about time.
If you’re a Sufferpreneur, chances are, you treat your time like it’s an all-you-can-eat buffet.
But, spoiler alert, it’s not.
Time is precious, my friends.
Each second you spend doing something you could outsource is a second wasted.
Start treating your time like the gold it is.
Your business will thank you.
Remember, being an entrepreneur doesn’t have to feel like you’re climbing Everest without a guide.
