What Keeps Entrepreneurs Up At Night?

While never touted as an easy path to success, over the years I've observed a few drivers of entrepreneurial insomnia. In fact for many the challenges far outstrip their personal drive and tolerance for risk.

Six Common Entrepreneurial Fears:
1) Selling and rejection
2) They said “yes” – now what do I do?
3) Inability to cover living expenses (or make payroll)
4) Not building “career” for future employment
5) Figuring out what to do when your first attempt fails
6) Losing your family

Net, most folks have “day jobs”, “work for the man” and “sleep at night” :)
