Here are ten questions
to see if you are up to the challenge of entrepreneurship.
1) Are you
willing and able to bear great financial risk?
Roughly half of all
start-ups close within five years, so you must be realistic about
the financial risks that come with a business.
2) Are you
willing to sacrifice your lifestyle for potentially many years?
If you’re used to steady
paychecks, regular working hours, four weeks’ paid vacation and
health benefits, you may be surprised at the changes you must adapt
3) Is your
significant other on board?
Don’t ignore the toll
that running a business will take on your family. Honest and open
communication will lessen that stress.
4) Do you like
all aspects of running a business?
Founders are often
expected to handle everything from billing customers to hiring
employees to writing marketing materials. It can be frustrating to
spend so much time on “busy work.”
5) Are you
comfortable making decisions on the fly with no playbook?
There are a lot of
decisions to be made without any guidance, and you are calling all
6) What’s your
track record of executing your ideas?
The ability to implement
ideas is one of the biggest differences between successful
entrepreneurs and everyone else. It takes drive, persuasiveness,
leadership skills and keen intuition, to turn an idea into a
7) Are you
persuasive and well-spoken?
It takes strong
communication and interpersonal skills to get people (lenders,
customers, etc.) to believe in your vision as much as you do.
8) Do you have a
concept you’re passionate about?
If you’re not exuberant
about how you’ll be spending your time (or in the business concept)
running a business is going to be a rough ride.
9) Are you a
Entrepreneurs face lots
of discouragement. It takes willpower and an almost unwavering
optimism and tenaciousness to overcome these constant obstacles.
10) Do you have a
Finding a business
partner who compensates for your shortcomings, and has equal
enthusiasm for the business concept, can help lessen the risks while
boosting the odds of success.

Build An Inclusive
Where does the
difference lie between friendly social groups and divisive cliques?
It can be hard to tell — until you realize that your company has a
problem. Even though you can’t change how your employees feel about
each other, there are several ways to keep the business functioning:
Remain objective and investigate conflicts from both sides.
Gather all the facts first, before taking action.
Build relationships with all individuals.
Although groups may see themselves as very different from each
other, don’t let group politics distract you from getting to
know each person.
Keep everyone focused on the work to be done.
Talk briefly with each group or team about the need to work
together. Maybe write out procedures to follow, which assure
they must interact to succeed.
Try to bring cliques together.
Once you are sure that the necessary work is being done, build
on inclusive work relationships.
