A lot of folks show up on the business scene with a great idea and a desire to "give it a try." That term, that simple phrase, "Give it a try," is a formula for failure.
Business is tough. It’s not for toe-dipping or hoping things work out. It is for those who have a dream and the determination to see it through. The bottom line: Anyone can survive the good times. It is the ability to get up after receiving a blistering, blinding two-by-four across the bridge of the nose — that is the test of those who survive and thrive in the arena of entrepreneurship.
So, work hard. Make money. Have fun. And never give up.

"Most successful growth entrepreneurs…
their success comes not from what
they did during the good times, but
how they reacted when they stood
at the brink of disaster."
