    Specifically, what roadblocks do you face that prevent you from making an idea happen—lack of knowledge, resources, direction, time, money, etc? Also if you lived in a perfect world, what would your process for launching a new business be like?

    I never take that position, or train of thought, when taking an idea from thought to reality. It is completely self defeating. The only thought process that you should have, consistently, is that the solution(s) is/are there and you simply have to be persistent in order for it/them to be revealed to you.

    I must say, I agree! Although, the occasional negative thought comes to mind and tries to slow me down. I've learned not to dwell on those things. I acknowledge them, learn what caused them, then move on knowing how to prevent it from sneaking up on me again.

    Obstacles are put in our way to see if what we want is worth fight for! Never give up, stay focused, stay positive and you will overcome.

    Having a mentor would definitely help anyone starting a business.
    It would help even more if the mentor was located in the same area as you so they'd know how to go about the paperwork and stuff like that as well.
    I spent the longest time looking for someone to mentor me (someone good, not just an "entrepreneur wannabe"), and it's not easy, but it'll save you lots of money and time trying out/looking for new things.
    Having support for family members and people around you also works, but it's hard trying to convince them you're not just a lunatic that doesn't want to work an average job. haha

    Let me know your thoughts!

    Good topic! It reminded me of this article I read last year. My biggest issue was the blind commitment. You grow up dreaming different ideas in your head, and at some point you make a decision. I knew when I was 15 years old I wanted to teach others how cook, bake, and fill their homes with amazing aromas from their kitchen. How better to do that then sell them the tools to do so? However, committing fully to my store was tough. How sure was I that I would succeed? Am I holding two Ace's or two 3's in this poker game? I had to take a leap of faith and go all-in.

    To answer your question, I wish I had the knowledge to know I would succeed and how to make it through the downfalls of owning your own business. It is still hard making business decisions, today. I'll debate switching brands of spatulas for weeks before I finally make a choice. I can look at the data, and do all the research I want on the possible outcomes, but ultimately, I do not know what might come of that decision.

    I can only persist with that sort of indecision for so long. It's stressful. Eventually, which is often fairly quickly, I'll just look at which way I think I'm leaning and go for it.
