Here are some tips for new business owners. I like the last one the best.

It's always better to start something today than keep putting off your dreams until, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow.

Tips for entrepreneur boomers (http://www.cnn.com/2007/LIVING/worklife/07/16/cb.boomer/index.html)

1. Find something you really love to do.
2. Be sure there's a market need.
3. Assess your skills.
4. Assemble a team.
5. Be realistic about money.
6. OK, we said there'd only be five tips ... but we lied.

There's a sixth: don't let the first five tips delay you from pursuing your dream. The biggest mistake an entrepreneur can make with a start up is to not start at all. Jump in, learn the ropes, make adjustments along the way ** and have some fun!

I think numbers 1, 2, and 5 are the best ones

How often do any of us find ourselves in a business we really don't love. I think it happens a lot. Then we just are never really that into it.

That is like me right now. I thoroughly enjoy about half of the services that I provide, and hate the other half.
