Do you have what it takes to start a company?

If you pick up any book on being an entrepreneur, the first chapter will be about, “Do you have what it takes to start a company?”

The point all these books are trying to make is, “It is not easy to start a company! It is positively difficult to be an entrepreneur.”

Most people don’t want to take the risk to start a new company because they are afraid of things like:

  • What if I fail?
  • What if it does not work?
  • What if I go bankrupt? etc. etc.

People, who work past these initial fears and decide to go ahead and start a company, have to be prepared to really work for it. It is difficult to start a company and most people quit on the way. There will be many things that de-motivate you when you go about starting your company.

If you seriously want to start a company be ready to work very very hard for it!
