Gaining perspective by reading biographiesGetting the courage to start a business takes guts. Plenty of well meaning friends and family will tell you how opening a business may be the financial ruin of you. Failing in the endeavor is certainly a possibility but so is succeeding.
Currently, I am reading about T Boone Pickens. His autobiographical book is very interesting and inspirational. He had a family, bills and such yet took the chance to start his own company. How'd he do? Well, though I haven't read the entire book yet, I know he became a billionaire. Not too shabby.
Reading biographies of successful entrepreneurs can provide you perspective so you may be able to draw courage from their situation and give your dream of self employment a boost.
