    aRE YOU A SELF-STARTER?

    It will be up to you - not someone else telling you - to develop products or processes, organize your time, follow through, close sales and deliver 100% customer satisfaction.

    OW WELL DO YOU GET ALONG WITH DIFFERENT PERSONALITIES? 

    You will need to develop working relationships with a variety of people including customers, vendors, employees, bankers, lawyers, accountants, etc. Can you deal with a demanding client or unreliable vendor in the best interest of your company? 

     
    hOW GOOD ARE YOU AT MAKING DECISIONS?

    You will have to make decisions constantly, independently, quickly - and under pressure.

     
    hOW WELL DO YOU PLAN AND ORGANIZE? 

    Many business failures could have been avoided through better planning. Good organization - of financials, inventory, production schedules, and your employees - is essential, and becomes even more important as you grow your company. 

     
    iS YOUR DRIVE STRONG ENOUGH TO MAINTAIN YOUR MOTIVATION? 

    Running a business can wear you down because you carry all the responsibility alone. Strong motivation to make the business succeed will help you survive the tough times. 

     
    dO YOU HAVE THE STAMINA? 

    Entrepreneurship is challenging and exciting, but it's also very hard work. It can take a toll on your health. Can you face 12-hour work days, often 6-7 days a week? 

     
    hOW WILL YOUR BUSINESS AFFECT YOUR FAMILY? 

    Entrepreneurship is hard on family life. You may be asked why you don't "get a real job" and you may experience financial difficulties until the company becomes profitable.
