People are drawn to business opportunities for a number of reasons. In JumpBunch, for instance, we obviously get many who are interested simply because it is an opportunity to work with kids. That passion can be a great fuel to propel you towards the possibility of doing something that you love and making a difference. It can't be the only fuel though. Any successful business has to make money. It doesn't necessarily have to be six or seven figure money, but it does have to be enough on the profit side, however you individually may define that.
Dave Ramsey is an expert on business success. He created the term "entreleader" as a blend of the pure entrepreneur and the pure leader. The concept that was spawned from the best selling book Entreleadership is now a full blown enterprise aimed at improving the "process of leading to cause a venture to grow and prosper". One of his beliefs is that anyone can create great success for themselves and/or their business by applying three specific things properly. They are focus, intensity, and time.
