  1. Not a bad attempt at encouraging entrepreneurship nonetheless am not that comfortable with the mindset that a small business is got to be second to your main source of income. Look around examples like Facebook and on and on and you will realize the only reason they made it big as entrepreneurs was because their enterprise was the main thing… nothing else. Its the only way you will be driven to succeed. Entrepreneurship is not a spare job. our enterprises are real careers
