Gary,

No matter what kind of business you are trying to start, every entrepreneur should read this list. Not every point might refer to your business, but together they give a good overview of what perspective small business owners should be prepared for. Thanks for sharing!

I second that... I am a very big fan of at least giving *some* thought into what it means to own and operate a business *before* jumping in. Even where the startup investment and overhead are relatively low, time is *also* money, and that's something people tend to overlook. Not to mention, many people (and situations) are just not suitable for business ownership.
