I'm bursting with ideas!

Rewarding - Doing something you are passionate about, getting up in the morning and going to sleep at night waiting anxiously to work more and do more - because it's yours, and it's for you. Seeing a finished product that originated in your idea. Priceless.
Relying too much on assumptions and expectations (so many unforeseen things will happen). Even worse is not being able to adjust to these changes because we're too emotionally invested in our companies to see the logical, business-oriented solution.
1. Don't waste time and energy on people who do not get it. Not worth the heartache and headache. If they got it, they would have done it themselves.
2. Things will not go as planned, so plan accordingly...
3. Talk to people about your idea/company. You need an objective opinion, and you might get some great ideas that will help your business.
