Owning a business is a dream come true for many people as it allows them to make decisions, gain independence, and devote their time to a project they truly care about. However, some individuals allow the fear of failure to stand between them and achieving their goals. According to a survey published in the Los Angeles Times, fear of failure plagued 31% of roughly 1080 respondents and was the number one reason individuals do not set goals or try new things. If you take the right measures and plan ahead, starting a business can be the most satisfying and fulfilling experience of your life.
