It takes guts, capital, a lot of hard work and sacrifices. And that won't be enough if you don't have any business sense. You also need a good personality when you interact with your clients. You need to be good at what you do... and show your clients that you know what you are talking about. A massive 80 per cent of businesses go broke in the first 5 years. Only those with all the qualities above have 20 per cent of chances of success. Even when you have all those qualities... you still have to deal with the competition trying to steal your clients. It can be very rewarding to have your own business... but it is a hard road to get there. Most people think their boss have it easy. If only they knew...

I believe that if you wait to be "all must organized" and "all must redy" you probably never start the business any way!

To me starting my own business it takes a lot of effort. You see, I believe that there is three things that prevent you from doing anything in life to include a business. Those three things you have to be aware of because you will encounter every time you are doing some thing. Those three things are "you," "other people around you," and "your present circumstance." When talking to Donald Trump Donny Deutsch (The Big Idea Host) asked Mr. Trump: "What is the secrete to success Mr. Trump?" Mr. Trump said: "Three things!"; "Never Give Up," "Love What You Do!," "Now Your Product" I've elaborated more about these three things in my blog here is the link. http://startmyownbusinesstoday.blogspot.com/2007/8/watching-big-idea-friday-night.html
