You can build an innovative, entrepreneurial community, regardless of the obstacles.
We're here to support any would-be "Little Venture on the Prairie." For rural entrepreneurs and their supporters in the community.
You want to start or expand a business, and possible excuses are numerous:
Too few customers in the countryside Customers have no money anyway Can't find appropriate building/real estate Can't obtain bank loan Investors don't understand your potential Stimulus money all went to the wrong people instead of you You are a single parent without family support Not enough savings to survive the start up stage Current day job is overwhelmingly, monopolizing of your time and energy Too many kids
Can't give up health insurance benefits
Fear of selling
Fear of rejection No university education Remote location limits transportation options Someone took your brilliant idea Starting a business could lead to financial ruin (at least now you have a steady income) Timing is bad; after Christmas would be better In-laws disapprove
Now that they're all out in the open, can you let go of them and move forward? You must set a deadline for yourself and remain conscious of the Resistance (see the earlier posting on Steven Pressfield's book War of Art).
A lot of people have faced excuses better than the ones above and ignored them and became moguls.
