Being an entrepreneur is often thought to be part of the American Dream, along with owning a house and having the perfect family with 1.5 kids. Not sure what the .5 is but that is for another blog! Starting a business from scratch is a risky endeavor but hopefully worth the risk. Not every business can be successful. Not every idea can be a home run. Who would have thought inventing a paper clip would be a home run? If you are thinking about starting a business, be prepared for the good times and the bad. If you can make it through the bad times, you are ahead of most. Yes, it will be scary and some people may tell you that you’re crazy. If you believe in yourself and the product or service you can offer, others will too!
