Reasons people don’t start a business

Latest posts by Rich Sloan (see all)

The people who seem to use our site the most – and listen to our show the most – are a mix of people who are either considering becoming an entrepreneur or who are already an entrepreneur, and are looking to grow their business.

Both of these kinds of community members can comment on this question:

What keeps people from starting up?

Some would say "confusion." Some would say "fear." Others would argue that it’s "intimidation"–a feeling that they simply can’t do it.

Or how about "no money"? Still others would say "laziness."

For those of you who’ve made the leap and those of you who have yet to jump in, what IS the reason that you think most people just never start up at all?

We want to know because we want to break down those common barriers and get people headed in the direction of PROGRESS.

Please help with your perspectives.
