  • ---Shares

Make no mistake: not all days on the path to entrepreneurship will be glorious.

On the contrary, starting a business can be a lonely journey. That’s why you need to be able to hold on to a sense of meaning, says Daniel Lubetzky, the founder and CEO of KIND Healthy Snacks.

“I really do believe that purpose is an incredibly powerful tool for entrepreneurs,” says Lubetzky at the Entrepreneur 360 conference in New York City. “It’s so important that you talk with yourself and understand, ‘What gives me passion?’”

Finding and tapping into purpose has worked for Lubetzky. He launched KIND in 2004, and today the New York City-based snack company employs more than 300 full-time team members and has sold more than 1 billion bars.
