So You Want to be an Entrepreneur
Claiborne County Chamber of Commerce
1732 Main Street
If you are starting a business, make sure you're cut out for it first. In this bleak economy, lots of people are contemplating striking out on their own-- whether they're frustrated job seekers or people who are already employed but getting antsy about their company's prospects.For some people, entrepreneurship is the best option around, a way to build wealth and do something you love without answering to somebody else. But it's also a huge financial gamble -- and some people, unfortunately, will discover too late that it's not the right fit for them. Building a successful business can take years filled with setbacks, long hours and little reward. Certain personalities thrive on the challenge and embrace the sacrifices. But it can be a hard switch for someone who has been sitting in a cubicle with a steady paycheck.
