As long as you can find a market where you have some sort of advantage, the business will be profitable. After your first few ventures, it’ll become more about running a successful business and less about making a lot of money. The thing that’s more important is your passion. I started this company in 1999 for zero.
Scott Dylan (Fresh Thinking Group): My experience in financial management is what made me the person I am today. I have invested a lot of time and money and I’m not exactly rich but I am passionate about what I do. You just have to make it up to your business, get the right people and if the money comes later then it comes.
