Erica Zidel is the Cover of December Entrepreneur Magzine

November 22, 2011

Opening up my Entrepreneur Magazine and seeing a spread of young, female entrepreneur Erica Zidel of Sitting Around was incredibly exciting. If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, be sure to do so. Not only does Erica have an awesome article she is the feature in, but she is also gracing the December cover!

In the article, How to Bootstrap Your Business, Erica talks about the fine balance between working a full time job to fund your startup, building the business, and being a mom.

“A lot people think that to be a successful entrepreneur, you need to be sleeping on an air mattress and working on your business 80 to 90 hours a week,” she says. “But I think that definition of success is silly. I’m living proof that if you have a quality idea and you spend your time well and execute it well, you can wind up with something great.”

AMEN to that! Congrats to Erica on such a huge accomplishment. Keep up the good work!

    Keep up the good work indeed. Thanks for debunking the 80-90 hour a week/air matress myth about being an entrepreneur!

    Yes, it’s really more like 75 hours a week and a futon.
    Air mattresses are too uncomfartable to sleep on.
