If you are looking out for a business opportunity then keep any eye on problems people around you are facing.
You can’t be an entrepreneur for other people. You can’t start a company for other people. You have to love it more than you ever thought of loving something that wasn’t a human being. The demands will kick you down and rob your life – but yet, it is so rewarding.

Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t so you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t
If you want to be an entrepreneur, its not a job, it’s a lifestyle. It defines you. Forget about vacations, about going home at 6pm – last thing at night you’ll send emails, first thing in the morning you’ll read emails, and you” wake up in the middle of the night. But its hugely rewarding as you’re fulfilling something for yourself.

Money is like gasoline during a road trip. You don’t want to run out of gas on your trip, but you’re not doing a tour of gas stations.
