Seems to help if the 2 guys have the same first name!  Like 2 Steves started Apple, 2 Henrys started Broadcom (my employer), and 2 Bobs started Linear Technology.  Am I looking for my other Jim?  No, I tried entrepreneurship and found it was business XOR family.  I chose family.  Next to impossible to do both well.

@DarylGerke I hope that you are going to share some of the things you've learned the hard way being a consultant. While not in the same field, i did freelance work for a company and never got paid, it was a lesson I really learned the most difficult way!

Hi Karen,

Good idea!  Yes, I've learned a few lessons the hard way - like how the bankruptcy laws work (that one cost us about $10k) and about "barriers to entry", along with a few more. I'll see about working some posts on those. Thanks.
