They don't have the money behind them to get through the first two years.

They ignore that a business usually does not make money the first year.

That a business usually will just break even the second year.

That it usually takes three years for a business to take off and generate good profits.

Something I am starting to realize... My first year lost a bunch of money. This year pretty much broke even. Next year will be the ultimate test.
