I was a born entrepreneur I have always been fascinated by business. I have studied it my whole life both in text books and by watching businesses — why one sandwich shop fails while another succeeds, why is McDonalds #1 and Burger King #2. I enjoy finding the little things that make the big difference.
I have started several different businesses over the years that have all ended badly for one reason or another. Now at 37 years old I am wrapping up my most recent debacle and I find myself broke and renting a condo with my wife and daughter. My wife’s job keeps us afloat and she has had it with the word “business” and is pushing hard for me do the 9 to 5 like everyone else.
I almost agree with her and want to convince myself to give up the dream for a regular check. The only problem is I can’t convince my mind because the ideas keep coming every time I see a vacant building or a "for lease" sign ideas race through my mind I see all the exciting possibilities that could be and think “this could be the one”.
