        So true, it took me almost 4 years to give up my first business and admit it tanked. Now I just started my 2nd business, I have a good business partner and things are more structured and organized. :D

          I have spent the last 15 years in restaurants. I have the dream of opening my own. I formulated a formal business plan and met with my city's economic development director, have a real dollar amount for opening with continuing operating costs. My plan is to make my restaurant very unique. I have completely changed the process up to and including integrated modern technology. Securing funding was the only roadblock I've experienced. It doesn't mean that this has failed, in fact I view it only as a ready to plan. It would be backwards to find a financier without a business plan. I honestly feel as if I'm on the right highway, it's just not my exit. Finding funding first in that analogy is getting on that highway, you most likely will get in a head-on collision.

          So in the meantime I've started a small vending business to help fund my restaurant. I still add or alter my business plan nearly monthly as I learn of new products and competitors.
          I feel the best way to say it is a from The Rolling Stones "You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes well you might find, you get what you need."

                      This is a solid video, showing the hard parts of entrepreneurial risk. Tying in your personal experience is a fantastic way to relate these concepts. I may have to look at my own material and evaluate ways to explain by example. Thanks Aaron.

                            This was an awesome and very honest video. These are the types of videos people need to see on a day to day basis. It helps to know the hard truths about anything but it also helps to hear the ups about anything. Thank you for this type of encouragement for people like me that plans to start a new business.
