"Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard" —Guy Kawasaki, Founder of AllTop.
The concept of becoming an entrepreneur is an exciting one to say the least. Leaving the mundane 9-5 office setting allows you to set your own rules and build wealth doing something you love. You get to leave the constraints of corporate culture behind.
As appealing as this may be, for many - this is a huge gamble.
Building a successful business can take years of long hours, little pay and endless setbacks. The ability to persevere when it seems like everything is going wrong, is a reality that any entrepreneur must deal with. Certain personalities thrive in this environment however it's not for the faint of heart.
