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

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!

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.
