Most of us harbor thoughts of starting a business.
It is a delicious fantasy while staring at gray cubicle walls, or toiling outside for an hourly wage under the command of someone who is profiting from the fruits of your labor.

The greatest heartbreak, popular success publications tout, is failing to do something about your burning passion for a world-changing idea. A greater heartbreak, in reality, is placing this idea onto a shaky foundation and watching it fall apart.

What is really driving your desire to start a business?

If you are like most people:

  • You want to make an impact in the world.
  • You want to create wealth for yourself and your family.
  • You want to translate your idea into a tangible product or service.
  • You want to have the flexibility to spend time with your family.
  • You want to feel fully alive.
  • You want to use your strengths in a way that leads to deep value.

These desires are not fantasies. There are thousands of entrepreneurs who have built successful businesses on a solid foundation and accomplish these goals every day.
