Thinking of launching a new business?  Better first ask yourself these five questions:


  1. You’re in an elevator with a total stranger.  The stranger asks you about your business idea.  Can you explain what you sell, who you sell to and why they buy from you, before the elevator stops at the next floor?  You have just twenty seconds.  A short, crisp, understandable message is your first step to success. 


  1. You love good food and you love to eat it, so you decide to open a restaurant.  Do you also love working in the kitchen, managing difficult people, and paying attention to every detail from perfectly bleached table cloths to perfectly seasoned quiche?  When your strengths align with your interests and passions, anything is possible.     


  1. You’re willing to work hard.  You consider yourself a high achiever and top employee.  Can you also get up and go when no one requires you to get up and go, stay focused on the vision when no one else sees it, and refuse to quit when you are obviously failing?  Unrelenting determination is your best friend.


  1. You easily sailed through high school with above average grades and numerous compliments from admiring friends and teachers.  Did you also excel in sports, serve on the student council, play first chair violin, captain the debate team, or run a successful mowing business after school while delivering newspapers in the mornings?  A history of personal achievement will bolster your confidence at just the right times. 


  1. You are recognized as one who quickly digests complex ideas, communicates them effectively, understands how they apply and turns them into productive action.  Are you also driven to continuously set new goals, rarely satisfied with the status quo and always searching for the next learning opportunity ahead?  Humble curiosity coupled with 20/20 vision might just give you the edge to succeed.
