    Dude, I experience that too, but we learn from the experiences and try try again.

    Its interesting to know that there's so much people trying their 'luck' on being their own boss. I just wanna say that, its no luck, if you are banking on luck, luck will run out one day. Its about shrewd market observation and taking opportunity when its there.

    My previous experience is same as yours, you have friends working together and being your own boss, you thought its the best thing in the world! But when the messy issue of money comes in the picture, the best friend can become the worst enemy over night. Be realistic, alway know what you have and don't have. Don't gamble, its all calculated risk. Everything is well planned and measure before taking the plunge.

    My impression of the entrepeurner's suitable candidate or personality should be someone who's:

    1) Restless type, alway felt there are bigger thing to come. Beware though, this is the most dangerous groups, always unprepare, alway base on instinct or impulses.

    2) Creative type, always felt thing could be do in another method rather than the conventional way. Most likely failed by being unrealistic. No sense of possiblitily of scale....

    3) I'll put it when I remember, hee hee

    How many kilo u want? U juz tell me nia, den wad? I give u everything har?

    To make myself look nicer and not so fierce...

    Threadstarter: Light a scented candle, close ur room door, sit cross legged and upright in ur bed, close ur eyes and meditate on what u want in life.

    Ok, that's my valiant attempt at 'softening' myself. We can all tok-the-tok, but we can't be walking his path for him, for we have our own paths to walk. We can share the light to our path, but izzit The Path that the threadstarter wants?

    u talking about me?

    u should add 1 more.. perfectionist... never contented kind... they will keep wanting to get more... and even when everybody said its perfect, they will keep insist that its not...

    multi-tasking... they always do more than 1 things at a time, and will never wait for 1 thing to finish and they will start another new wave...

    think i also add more later

    Huh? But your two perfectionist and multi-tasker can never mix lah! A perfectionist is so focus in the detail that loses sight of the big picture. A multi-tasker is the opposite.
