The lesson that I have learned and that has been reinforced time after time is that you must know and understand who you are, what you want, what is your passion and how much you are willing to give in order to succeed before you make any decisions about entrepreneuring. People who do not do this are far more likely to fail. They are far more likely suffer in their career. They are also likely to search constantly for a better deal without finding the right one. Once you have the first four features in order, traditional business analysis, commitment, launch and operation systems that are readily available will help to maximize your opportunities for success. The final step is to proceed cautiously and fearlessly. Pursuit of learning and living what is right for you and pursuing your passion intelligently and without fear is the most important lesson that I would like to pass along.
