Key quotes:

More than half of American adults are in jobs they don’t like.

Sometimes entrepreneurship is what it takes for somebody to be happy. Not all of us are cut out to work for other people. Some of us want to run our own show.

Research the market. Is what you want to do available in the market that you’re in?

Think about what makes you happy. Where is it in life that you want to be? What is the vision you see for yourself?

The only limits are the ones we place on ourselves.
