There's a very real emotional toll as well. Aside from excitement, hopefulness and that fabulous heart-pounding adrenaline that comes with a great business idea (if you don't experience this, why are you in business?!), there's just as many moments filled with frustration, fear, insecurity and stress. These moments, among other things, are part of the price you pay for being an entrepreneur.

If you're going to survive the stress of being an entrepreneur without losing momentum or health, you've got to take care of yourself. And since nothing does your body and mind more good than daily exercise, that means working out at least 30 minutes a day. #NoExcuses. I read somewhere that most successful entrepreneurs work out for a minimum of 30 minutes per day and eat no more than 200-300 calories in junk food. Well, whether that was true or not, it make sense. I was in business for 9 years before I realized I'm not invincible and began taking personal health seriously. And now I find myself craving the fresh mind and energy that comes with my daily workout!
