Hey Guys ( Craig, LT, Leslie, Anurag & Andrew)
Thanks so much for writing on this thread. Really makes me feel so much more confident.
Over the past few years, I started feeling that I was not of the type who would work with an employer for the rest of my life and retire. It just did not seem to be something that I wanted to do. I want to go to the next step in life, do something more than work 8 to 5. That feeling got stronger and stronger because after implementing a ERP solution a few times, it feels to become a routine. And more recently, my feeling to start a business got even more stronger because my expenses started to shoot up but my income does not seem to go up. Blame it on the dotcom fiasco and then more recently, the real estate crash. I got my first house in early 2005 and you know the rest of the story...
Coming back to passions, I have had several ideas that I would get over the past few years ever since I started feeling about starting up a business. Some ideas that I got out of necessity and some, because I kept thinking of ideas. For example, I thought it would be a really cool if we were to have a computer mouse that would have a finger print reader. And we have a software that goes along with it. So, using it, the mouse will read your finger prints and plug the password to any account you would log into.. You just don`t have to remember your passwords for the rest of your life, no matter how many accounts you have.. And you don`t have to worry about another user using your machine when you stepped away from your machine, because their fingers don`t match yours... Now, isn`t that a cool idea. People who have to remember a lot of pwds like me will defenitely agree with me.. So, I go and research on the net and guess what, those things do exist. There goes my idea.... And I go on to the next one.. This is an example of my school of thought for starting something. As i keep going in this journey, I am sure I will be asking more questions related to specific things that I will pursue.
