From MSN: Six Steps to being your own Boss
Get some experience
- Yup, totally agree here.
Build a winning team
- Probably the hardest part, all things considered.
Fight inexperience with advice
- Looking at successful young entrepreneurs, they almost always have a fairly close relative with a strong entrepreneurial background. I think it’s far more critical than most people realize, and yet probably not that hard if you just look around and ask for help.
Write a bulletproof business plan
- Bah. There’s no such thing, and trying to come up with one is a waste of time.
Follow the money
- No doubt you should be careful how you live, expect some ups and downs, etc. Essentially, be prudent.
