If Im a middle-aged physician with an idea for a new entrepreneurial business what are my odds of success?
If you can address the concerns detailed above and proceed with the full knowledge that most entrepreneurial ventures dont take off you are at least in a position to consider starting a venture. Successful entrepreneurs dont ever think about failure. An unsuccessful venture is just one more learning experience, another notch in the belt, an opportunity to grow, expand their network and make smarter decisions the next time. If you can have that attitude, you too can be a success; perhaps not on the first or second or third try, but perhaps thereafter.
