There are some things people do that makes you want to ask them, "Are you serious right now?"
Yesterday, a young lady I've been mentoring to start her own business told me that she had basically wasted four months of my time because she is afraid to lose money on a failing business. ARE YOU SERIOUS?!!!
I mean, the business hasn't even began and she's already talking about how it's going to fail. My advice to her: "You are absolutely right. It's going to fail because the owner doesn't even believe in it."
What was the business idea? Providing secretarial support to local businesses from home. Competition in her area? NO ONE! Money needed to get her started? $1000
A total waste of talent and time.
