Challenges of starting your own business

Worth reading - good advice from Martin Zwilling

"Most entrepreneurs expect to face the “normal” challenges of starting a business, which include finding the right opportunity, building and executing a winning plan, and financing their venture. Yet I find that many of these intelligent and hardworking people get struck by some pitfalls that are often associated only with more traditional business jobs.
These are facets of entrepreneurship that often don’t rear their ugly head until well down the road. Yet before you start, you should think about what the impact might be on your psyche, and how to neutralize these challenges in your own plan:
Starting a company as an entrepreneur should be viewed as the beginning of a lifetime career, not a work project that you expect to be over in a few months. As such you should consider the long-term challenges as well as the short-term ones. Life is too short to end up with pain and regret after a “successful” career."
