How to succeed in business and have the life you've dreamed of
Have an idea.
Realise you have no idea if you'll be able to pull it off. There are smarter people than you that have failed miserably. What makes you think you could do a better job than them? Seriously, what skills have you got? Not many. Why on earth would you risk your stable income from your job when chances are you're going to be back looking for a job in 12 months, only this time with a big gap in your resume that you'll have to try and explain. What are you going to say? Oh, that was when I tried to do something on my own and failed miserably, just like everyone said I would. So not only will you fail, you'll find it even harder to re-enter the workforce. Look, lots of people never made it in life, and they realised that it's having loved ones around you that's important. And your loved one's think you're mad for trying this stupid idea. Can't you just be normal like everyone else?
Do it anyway.
Probably fail. Maybe succeed.
