What is the thing holding you back from becoming an Entrepreneur?

I was in a class last night, and the speaker asked the attendees (about 100) what was holding them back entrepreneurially. Here is how people responded…

  1. Money
  2. Time
  3. Ideas
  4. Network
  5. Credibility
  6. Confidence

Money is by far the biggest one in the eyes of this audience. Here are four pages from MTMM that can help:

  1. How Startup Stock Creates Transcendental Wealth
  2. Designing a $1 Billion Startup
  3. How to Think Big about Your Startup
  4. How can you start today? (This one is the opposite of the prior three. If you want to start something small TODAY in a way that requires little or no money, this page will help)

See also the section on RAISING MONEY in the Table of Contents, starting with this page: How Raising Money Works.

The speaker would not accept “Time” as an answer, because everyone (in his eyes) has the same amount of time. You just have to carve time out. This video discusses the topic of time, and time’s nemesis: distractions:

Ideas and Ideation are covered extensively on MTMM. Look for the IDEATION section in the  Table of Contents, starting with this page: How Ideation Works

The other three are areas I need to add to this site. I will update this post as they become available.
