Starting A Business is a Daunting Dream

Before launching your business you may want to read this article by William Shulz from the Wall Street Journal's Startup Journal. He states in part:

"Running your own business is hard. But you think you're smart and can take an idea and make it happen. Odds are good that you'll lose half of your start-up cash by making mistakes. They may involve bad leases, employees, records, decisions, ideas or luck. The bottom line: You're bound to make mistakes, and they'll cost you.

Why do most small companies fail? Because no one can really tell you how to run a business. No weekend seminar can teach you everything necessary to be successful. "
