I think *one* reason is starting out too big too soon...
A lot of people get in over their heads and aren't willing to start small and grow!
You never know how many people are going to show up and pay to go through.
If you take 150,000.00 to start and don't have a solid plan to pay it while you grow, that isn't good.
We have taken the past 2 years to start what we could afford (we both were in the business for a few years prior and had a
good idea of attendance we could expect) and are growing from there. This year we are buying a building...it's not HUGE but
it will work and we won't have to move each year!
We can also afford it if we didn't make a dime out of pocket (IF WE HAD TO!)-the bank liked this!
I was told my my good friend Kelly Allen to "enjoy the ride and appreciate NOW because once you get where you want to be, you'll look back and it'll be worth it!" (or something to that effect-LOL)
