But a business, especially in the world of startups, is often like an iceberg. What most people see is just 10 percent of the entire mass; much more lies unseen. Long hours late at night; the existential limbo of uncertainty and self-doubt; the burn of dreams dashed when things just don’t go right. That’s a universe of entrepreneurship that we’ve been sold – but what if we don’t fit into its mold?
