Default I agree

I agree, great post :)

I also agree with Dien. Doris's story needs to be put beside that of presumably thousands of others who did much the same as her and failed miserably.

My guess is there are relatively few who find their 'winner' first-time round. Even for those who do, there are so many external factors which affect business which one cannot control--'luck' may be necessary, but I'll settle for the absence of 'bad luck' :)

I do think personality has a lot to do with which suits best, focus or diversity. Some people live all their life in one location, others like to move around every few years. Some will work decades for one company, others... etc.

One can over-focus to the extent of missing obvious opportunities--or one can over-diversify to the extent of never giving anything a decent shot.

Your approach has to suit your personality--that's what keep you going during the tough periods, the passion which is sustained by the alignment with your inner needs.

Great story though--and I love the Pampered Chef products we've bought :)

Mike.
