“Nothing astonishes men so much as common sense and plain dealing.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

“He (Seth Goden) says, quite correctly, that most people who buy books on entrepreneurship never get beyond the dreaming stage because ‘deep down inside, they don’t think they have what it takes to succeed’.  I don’t know if that is the most common fear of starting a business.  I wish it were.  But I’m afraid too many entrepreneurs have the opposite problem.  They don’t realize they don’t have what they need to succeed….  The solution to that fear is to put your plan on hold and acquire the experience to know what you need to know.” -Mark Ford
