1.    But do they have money?  Very few can follow their dreams because they don’t have the financing.  I have personally fed entrepreneurs, let them sleep on my couch for a few days, and the ultimate happened this weekend when I let an independent film crew film a horror movie trailer, Diabolic, in my house.  This meant feeding them and having them invade my personal space two nights in a row.  It was a small sacrifice on my part and I hope the trailer finds them money to fund their project.

I have been able to start a new business because my other business is self sustaining…for now.  The business is BigSexyWords and we are copy writers.  I have given writing projects away for free not only to help other entrepreneurs on their way but give my own writers a chance to have some different projects that will enhance their writing ability and also give me a test of their skill.

I have been in business for 8 years and I have had excellent mentors and help along the way.  It makes me feel good to give back.  The point is I am an entrepreneur and I love other entrepreneurs and their projects.  It is exciting.  It is a drug to feel the positive energy and the excitement of them believing in their passion.
