Why do we want to own a business of our own? I guess it is because we have dreams. We want something that means a lot to us. This could be world travel, paying off your debt or mortgage or putting your children through private school. Dream building is key to success in any business. Dreams stair our emotions. They are what will get us out of our comfort zone to do things we think we cannot do. Reason alone will not cause us to do these things. Our minds which always looks for the road of least resistance will probably tell us not to try. We will try to find reasons to justify our inactions. It is emotion that will cause us to go after our dreams.
