This has been bugging me of late. Contemplating starting a business as I have finally figured out I'm just not very employable - like my autonomy a little too much to get along conflict free in any kind of "cog in the machine" environment. Google tells me you must have passion to succeed in business. Apparently making a living out of it should not be your first priority, rather a desire to help people with some problem you have identified, and then the cash will follow. I don't know if I agree with that, I find it hard to believe anybody could be "passionate" about porta-loos for example. Now, I have several areas of interest, wouldn't call any of them a passion though. Thoughts? Is this an impediment? Hasn't anyone started a business solely as an alternative to wage servitude?
