  5. And take the leap!

  8. But you still do not feel free.
  9. You do not have any customers...
  10. And your limited funds are disappearing fast.
  11. You are scared.

  20. Your second idea stirs to life.
  21. But you are not having fun.
  22. You used to feel like a slave to your employer.
  23. Now you feel like a slave to your idea.

  25. So you pivot once again.
  26. It is two years later. You realize that a good idea is not enough.
  27. Entrepreneurs need an idea that fits their personality and abilities.
  28. You may not be a 24/7 entrepreneur.
  29. Maybe you are better suited to a clever little idea.
  30. One that gives you real freedom, and still enough income.
  31. Before you jump into a startup, take a hard look at yourself.
  32. You are NOT your idea.
