In this section, you’ll find video interviews with leading European entrepreneurs who explain how they managed to overcome their own doubts when starting their businesses.
“Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing”
As A person who is ♿, I am seeking advice on the best way to get started & the best Avenue to begin. I am bedridden most of the time but I want to change this. I don't even have a reliable vehicle to make Doctors appointments on time & all this is a bit overwhelming. I am not even sure where to begin, let alone what type of home based businesses are the most successful. I am also kind of stuck as to where to begin, thus this reaching out for ideas that could offer some solid advice. Being disabled, I don't in all honesty, handle rejection very well, so I need to be able to somehow deal with this as well. I see an awful lot of people running Internet businesses and more so than not, either the product has not been thoroughly tested thus leaving a bad taste & mistrust, to downright ripoff 'so I don't want to be in either category. I'm looking at different models and methods, such as yours to try to get a taste of what I am in for or if even beginning is worth the effort. Please send me your thoughts on this matter. I hope I chose the right platform for this. If not, I apologize & if so, Thanks for your time & I hope to hear from you soon. Lee Korth, firstname.lastname@example.org
