My name is Andy Escanuela and like many others I happened to stumble onto this website and I cannot get to a point where I stop reading. I am a huge fan of the Big Idea and I love hearing everyone else`s successes or how they plan to start their own business. I have had several ideas that I would like to start researching even more but cannot seem to determine which is the best way to go. I like the following concepts:
1) Indoor soccer Facility
2) Sports themed Barber Shop
3) Caribbean restaurant/bar
4) Automotive Customization (more of a hobby)
I have not done enough research to determine which of these businesses is most profitable so was hoping anyone that has done this or is looking to do this to provide a bit of insight. I am currently a Configuration manager that has worked in the Human Resources Information Systems arena for about 11 years. I want to get out of the corporate life and run with a dream I have had for the longest time. The main thing that is stopping me is fear of moving out of my comfort zone/stability. I know you will never be successful unless you try. But I cannot seem to move to that next step where I actually "walk the walk". I have simply been "talking" I think it is time for me to have the courage and take a "RISK". But before I do, I am hoping to learn from those of you who "have been there/done that". If you could provide some insight I would greatly appreciate it.
