So you want to own a business, do you? Do you really think you have what it takes to build something that will last a long time, make some real changes in this world, and provide people with something great? If you do, you have the cocky streak necessary to start something that could go a long way in this world. If you want to, you might even create a billion dollar business one of these days. But do you really have what it takes to make something that big happen? Unfortunately, most people don’t.
For a lot of people, the idea of chucking it all and going down their own path is just too scary to even think about. For them, the idea of going a week without a steady paycheck because they have to fund the business is enough to make a payday loan seem like the only way they will survive at all. For far too many people, this is the kind of thing that drives them—the fear of being without “a job.”
However, you can potentially rise above this working class mindset, and build something greater than a pension that probably won’t happen. When it comes to financing your startup, you have got to be willing to put everything you have on the line for something you want more than anything. You have to be willing to risk it all for something greater than you have ever imagined. This is one reason why most people fail at business. They are not willing to risk everything for something that may never happen. Are you willing?
