I`m right here in my cube feeling exactly what you feel. The thought of my planned business venture almost keeps me from being able to perform at work. My first dreams of being an entrepreneur started when I was 19. I even switched college majors from engineering to accounting to support a venture one day. Finally at 41 my day is coming. We are trying to sell our home and relocate for an opportunity. My wife is a very strong advocate for me and is backing me 110%. But once out of the cube I can`t go back, EVER!
It is all or nothing for me. Failure is not an option. As Yogi Berra once said, "if you come to a fork in the road, take it". In other words, in your venture always be ready to react to whatever comes at you. You will hit many forks and you can never know for sure which way to go but you have to make choices and keep going.
