Starting a business is the dream of many people. A lot of entrepreneurs share their experiences being business owners on social media and other channels. They have a big audience that dreams of achieving the same lifestyle as the entrepreneurs.
Of course, we should never underestimate the work and effort that is in the background of entrepreneurship. People who start their own business learn, research, prepare and plan a lot before they even take the first steps of starting their business.
The thing we see and know about entrepreneurs is a blurred sense of reality because they mostly show only certain things. Many entrepreneurs show their lifestyle, financial independence, and the freedom they gained. They do not show all the work and the whole path they walked until they reached this point.
The hard work pays off
Every entrepreneur had to take a path to reach their goal of running their own business. They maybe failed a few times before they actually built up the successful company they run today.
They had losses and fails and still kept their head up. They tried again. In this process, it is very important to learn from mistakes.
The hard work and patience through the whole process pay off!
Do not get irritated or blinded through social media where you have a filtered view of everything. You will see entrepreneurs, being happy, active, having a healthy lifestyle. But don´t forget that there are days of failure and the feeling of giving up. There are times where those business owners just sit and don´t know what to do next.
This is totally normal and acceptable. There are ups and downs and they both teach us everything that comes up.
Never stop to learn
The most important mindset is that you should always be open to learning new subjects. It can be the new strategies of marketing, management methods, or other things.
If you want to run with the time and be successful in the long term you should be up-to-date with as much information as possible.

You are running a business, so you know about nexus sales tax. Your business has a certain connection (nexus) in a country that defines if you have to collect and pay sales taxes.
The economic nexus term is so important because it focuses on online businesses. For online businesses, the definition if and to whom they have to pay tax was not clear.
