My first online marketing venture was simple: I created a website where people could see if Ultima Online Servers were online, and put four banners on the page and had it refresh every 30 seconds. When the servers were down, thousands of people would sit on the page waiting to see when the could enter the game.

Only then can you look yourself in the soul and see what is left, and then you can start really fighting. Essentially this is the part of us that we are all scared to see: that which is left when all else is gone.
To be an true entrepreneur you have to be willing to give it all up: the stability, the 9-5 job, the things that make it easy on you.
You have to be able to stare at yourself and know you are no different than anyone else, minus that one part that will make you successful:
