I want to change the world.
Frustrating: Long hours, trial and lots of errors, accounting and bookkeeping, getting that first sale.
Rewarding: Getting that first sale, customers using and recommending your product, inventing something new, building a business, changing the world.
Underestimating the sales effort.
1) Do it out of passion and hope the money follows; 2) Plan for the worst ; 3) Hire a great sales person.
No, that's stupid despite what many "entrepreneurs" claim. It's possible to spend too much money, but if you don't have the discipline to keep expenses under control, regardless of how much money you have, you shouldn't be running a company.
