Running businesses can be incredibly hard, well at least I think so. It takes a tough person to go through all the challenges that you are faced with from a day-to-day basis and just when you think you have nailed it, something else comes up and remind you that you haven't.
The problem is, they don't know where to start. Well, they do, but they haven't quite grasp how much they have to do to get the ball rolling.
For many of us, we have kicked some goals in 2017, but didn't quite stick to our New Years' Resolutions. If you are constantly on the improve, and wanting to grow as an individual, and in your careers or business, you know that you have to work out what is stopping you from reaching your full potential.

So, why would I not be able to self fund my startups that are disruptive and bring to the market products and solutions that will change the game?
I had breakfast with 'the devil's advocate' this morning. A dear friend who always asks a lot of questions and is possibly so seasoned that instead of having a glass half full when a new idea or business starts, he spends a little too much time in focusing on what won't work.
Most probably, you pondered one of these things or all of them before you went to your first interview. It may have created some nerves, or made you anxious. Perhaps, you did the opposite, and sounded overly confident and a tad cocky, when in fact you were shaking in your boots.
I really recognise myself in what you wrote. Coming from…
