Early this evening, I interview a friend of mine who is a startup founder for his company, Armando Fitness and Danza Sports. Both are newly set up companies and are generally focused on the fitness and sports industry.

I interviewed him for the sole purpose of wanting to understand the history of the company and his experiences in the startup world and also on how it is like to navigate that in Singapore.

“It is going to be lonely.”

The startup journey is one that is full of setbacks and trials. It is not for the faint-hearted. Something that we must learn quickly is that we cannot depend on anyone except ourselves. No one will believe in us only until we achieve a significant amount of success.

Hard work is also key.

Without hard work, nothing will happen and everything will be stagnant. The success and failure of the company lie in your hands.

I’ve been wanting to delve into the startup world and I will do it.

I will.

Much hustle needs to be done.
