There are many important and tough questions to ask – but I think that it is important to remember that everything takes hard work and you have to keep going and be willing to fail. Depending on your type of business, you also may not make money in the first two years and the question that you need to deal with is: Are you in a position in your life where you not afraid to take or handle risk or failures? If you are not in that position, then it’s best to just keep your day job.
