Wow.. is that ever true. Being an entrepreneur can sometimes feel like being at sea in fog so thick you can't see the bow of your ship. You have to keep going forward, that's what defines the winners.

Jim Randel

You are so right. Sometimes the fog is so dense, you can't even see the nose on your own face.

That might be one definition of a successful entrepreneur - someone willing to move forward even when the path is so dimly lit!

Thanks for your comment. Jim

An entrepreneur must know when to start and stop too. There should be right timing. Knowing when to quit is one important skill. I have a friend who started a tutorial center in our hometown without much plans (guess she was too dazzled with the idea of having her own business) and now she wouldn't quite thinking what other people might think of her while her debts are piling. I guess it's not just when to start but you should know when it's time to quit and go on with or life (or maybe open another business when you're really ready - financially, emotionally, intellectually). We should not be afraid to start over too. The previous business may not be the one for you, lingering too much into something which obviously won't work, even in the long run, is simply suicidal. You just know it when something is STILL worth trying or working on. You just have this discernment, or don't start a business in the first place if you're unsure.

hi jonha, i enjoy your comments... well thought out and right on point ... very hard for an entrepreneur to quit ... fine line between quitting too soon however and not quitting soon enough!
