You will be your own most important asset, so an objective appraisal of your strengths and weaknesses is essential. To determine if you have what it takes, you need to answer some questions about yourself: Am I a self-starter? How well do I get along with a variety of personalities? How good am I at making decisions? Do I have the physical and emotional stamina to run a business? How well do I plan and organize? Am I willing to travel? Are my attitudes and drive strong enough to maintain motivation? How will the business affect my family?
