What is the scariest thing about starting (or thinking about starting) a business?

One of my favorite responses is from Patrick Stultz:

“How do I get completely prepared? How do I know this is for me? Follow the great Clark Howards advice. If you want to open a Subway – become a manager at a subway first. Do you want to open a consulting business? Work for a company in that field. Think of it as a career test and on the job training.”

Great advice…. it’s all great advice. Go read the original question page, with the responses.

  2. The very first thing make people succeed is PASSION. If we don’t have passion in what we are going to do, we will have a lot of excuses.

    If we have passion, we can conquer fear, get fund, get mentor, etc. We need to have a strong “why”. After we got a strong “why”, “how” will automatically come.
