Is it Worth Doing?

Your idea that is:

Do you want to deal with physical products?
Do you want to deal with manufacturing?
Do you want to deal with a sales team?
Do you want to manage import/export?
Do you want to have a product that needs critical mass before it works well?
Do you want to deal with a niche based business or more broad appeal?
Do you feel excited & passionate about the idea?

Experiencing the Entrepreneur Pendulum

It is tough being an entrepreneur. Some days are amazing. While others you just want to crawl under a rock and stay there - forever.  I, at the moment, am experiencing what Mark Suster calls the terror in starting something new (On the other end of the pendulum is euphoria).
