Hang in there! Don't stop now! So many startups fail because the founder(s) get burned out and quit early. Of the many success stories I have read, you always hear that they pushed through at the very end when they were feeling like it was a failure, and it became a success.

Sometimes success is just on the other side of the fail mountain.

That's the Silicon Valley bias. You hear about the successes but rarely the failures (which comprise the majority). The problem is that you can "keep trying" to the grave.

My best advice to everyone is start as early as you can to buy time :)

But that doesn't mean you should quit either.
