Seriously, you're nuts, you're playing without a full deck, you're the person in your social group who is about to start being talked about in air quotes, like - Oh yeah, Jim owns his own "business" now.
Want to start your own business? First things first. Quit that safe, well-paying 9-to-5 job that pays your health insurance and retirement. Ready to spend all day practicing the God-given talents that you believe entitle you to start your own business? Oops, no time for that today; you've got to pay the bills, and marketing for new customers, oh, and pay your small-business taxes; and guess what, when 5 o'clock rolls around, you're not going home, because you're the boss!
Scared straight? If so, then good, go back to your desk, check your Facebook page and stare blankly at the wall until it's time for your pre-ordained 15-minute pre-lunch break.
But if you're still dreaming of being your own boss, you've passed the first test. You recognize that the road to business independence is a long, arduous one. You will be confronted with your worst fears, and we're not talking about that time you forgot to wear underwear to school in the fifth grade. Your excuses and limitations will be brought to light and either exposed or turned into strengths.
But there's something great about starting your business. Something that pushes thousands of people to start their own venture. It’s the same thing that made us want to start this blog.
