I guess everyone has its own opinion and views on this. There can be different prospective of this question. Most media and publishers will repeatedly talk about success stories of entrepreneurs and will give you a list of people who became billionaires before they turned 30, they seldom highlight the harsh truth of the mental turmoil and the struggle that entrepreneurs whether solo or with a team have to go through. Because the consumers of media want to hear only success stories as they sell like hot cakes.

It is hardly surprising then, that we often hear about Mark Zuckerberg in the news and sometimes almost every single day, but very few would know about Ilya Zhitomirskiy.
Entrepreneurs do not need advice, as they would have done their own research and very well know what they are getting into and understand what they need to do to succeed. They also know they have a slim chance of success, yet their never give up spirit and perseverance keeps them going. 

They need moral support and strong backing from the entrepreneur community, the society and most importantly their own families. They are creating jobs for the future generation.
