|Deciding whether or not to start a new business can be one of the most difficult decisions a person faces in life. The consequences are widespread, the impact is deep, and the required commitment is immeasurable. People arrive at this crossroad from various points. Some people seem to be “born entrepreneurs” and other people arrive at the crossroad less out of their own choosing.
