Welcome to Entre-Propel – a Blog dedicated to delivering words of motivation to entrepreneurs.
My name is Matt Thomas and I write the articles here at Entre-Propel.com to help entrepreneurs deal with the various emotional difficulties associated with running a business–lack of motivation, startup difficulties, dealing with failure, as well as many others.
I am a recent graduate at Hofstra University, with degrees in both Business Management and Finance. I have been a serial entrepreneur since the age of 14, where I started my career in entrepreneurship as a web designer.
Inspiration to Blog
During the summer of 2008, I started a new venture selling bath products using search engine Pay-Per-Click advertising.
Profitability is difficult with Pay-Per-Click advertising, so throwing more and more money into this campaign yielded little results. I quickly lost my motivation to continue pursuing this business.
While speaking with my fiancée about this, I realized that this is a difficulty every entrepreneur goes through – finding the motivation and emotional optimism to persist during the startup stages when profits are non-existent.
I resolved to start a blog that would help entrepreneurs maintain the same level of motivation that they had when they came up with the initial idea for their venture.
The entrepreneur of today does not have it easy. Starting a business brings with it an avalanche of tasks and issues one must overcome before they can even think about attaining profitability.
Today’s start-up entrepreneur must work extremely long hours, master all the different functions of their business and constantly take shots in the dark until they have a marketing scheme that actually works.
This blog hopes to provide words of motivation, inspiration and hope to the entrepreneur that is having doubts about his or her ability to persevere.
