At least once in their lives.

That mumbo jumbo about running a Startup not being for the faint heart is a barrier to entry.

I’m not saying go borrow $10,000,000 in foreign investment on an idea you’re not sure can ever hope to repay that.

What I am saying – is everyone should try being a startup at least once in their lives.

Make a lemonade stand.

Come up with an idea to sell bracelets, make them, market them and sell at the end of your driveway for a month.

Shovel driveways.

Meet with your friends and do lawncare for $10/lawn.

Write a whitepaper on your favourite topic of choice, create a facebook page and share it.

That’s it, that’s all, become a startup – go through understanding how to work with people, how to price your wares, how to talk to people and how to sell your services to others.

Start young, start old, who cares but do it at least once in your lifetime.  I won’t share the feeling you’ll experience it, but when you do, you’ll be hooked.
