On hanging in there

[E]ntrepreneurs have to be dogged and passionate. “It’s like going into a bar filled with 100 beautiful women. You ask the first one, ‘Will you go out with me?’ And she says no. You ask the second one out, and she pours her drink on you. The third one slaps you. Well, most people would give up at beautiful woman No. 2 or No. 3. An entrepreneur is the one who gets all the way to No. 100. And marries her and lives happily ever after.”
The whole thing is pretty interesting, here.

Hanging in seems somehow more respectable than hanging out.

Sounds like Edison's light-bulb story. Did he really fail 10,000 times before he hit on the right one?

Success is a numbers game. If you got to pay up to finance every failure you'll never get to number 100. Which is why regulatory hurdles, entry fee and permitting requirements are so damning.

CoP and Mult Co. Make you pay the business tax for next year even if you close this year.
