It’s not a myth, it’s a bald-faced lie. There are millions of people who have started a business with Zero money, Zero idea how to get from point a to point b, Zero connections, no network of advisors, no knowledge of the market, Zippo, Nada, Nothing.
Lots of those fail. But there are some that don’t. There are some that started with nothing but an idea, and someone that wouldn’t let go of that idea.
Laugh at those entitled individuals, who believe the only way to “start” is to have money in their pocket, the ability to spend it anyway they want, and probably a lousy idea to start with. They will get their asses kicked by someone with no money, no education, no connections, and no real “plan” — but they have the balls to get up everyday, and slug through the millions of details that need to get done to get their idea from nothing to something.
Keep telling people Jon, because most won’t listen anyway (we can only hope a few will).
