so all those gurus can say whatever they want
even yoda..... ask him to start from ground zero now ...see how long he takes.
pple who are already there can say all they want.
many pple who work and save .,.... then invest
some made it....
it is never a sure thing....
if you do venture.... then it is an adventure you are looking at...
NOT returns.... at least not in current context.
young companies like creative haven't even lasted a generation and are already looking at red. Whereas your neighourhood ahpei tat sells kway tao has lasted for more than 2 generations.
if you consider time, than I should promote my coffee shop auntie that sells nasi lemak to be the head of Temeask, coz her business has survived 3 generations.
you might laugh and say its "not the same", "risk is lower", "no need brain can setup one", "nickle and dime business" but to me. Its all the same.
