Don't start a business . . .

  • If you have no stomach for risk.
  • If you confuse interest with skill.
  • If you can't deal with confusion or lack of structure.
  • If you're undercapitalized.
  • Just because you're bored.
  • Just because you think you've got the most original idea around.
  • Just because your family is pressuring you.
  • Just because you think it will be fun.
  • Just because you don't want to take orders from anyone.
  • Just because you want to make lots of money.
