What is Holding You Back From Starting a Business?

| November 16, 2011 | 5 Comments

Yesterday we published a recent survey done that shows how young people want to start businesses but 38% are waiting for the economy to improve. The survey also went on to show some of the other areas that young people saw as barriers to starting a business.

So we decided that we wanted to see what barriers were holding our readers back. Even if you have a business vote for what was your biggest concern back when you started.

    If you wait for the economy to improve then more than likely those who started during the downturn will have a much better positioning. Entrepreneurship has a high risk factor during good and bad times. It is better to start creating your business profile now then wait when the marketplace will be crammed with eager participants ready to operate during better times.

    As a full time student I would say the trademark is what’s blocking me now, and then inventory, of course (clothing brand). In way too afraid to get business loans at this point.

    Pretend I’m Steve Ballmer: Mentorship mentorship mentorship. Mentorship mentorship mentorship. How else can a new entrepreneur take risks while learning from their mistakes?

    I hope It is a good attempt to know about the problems faced by the different people to start their business. And all the above options are reasonable.
