Great quote. Exactly the reason I'm working so hard, so many hours on my own business.

To all the young young and single, it's NEVER too early to start a business! This is the time to do it, when you have lots of free time. Don't think you have alot of it? Wait till you get married.

Just do it - make the commitment.

I'll be happy even if things don't work out as I've planned, because I'll know I gave it my all.

"J'ai davantage eu peur de regretter que d'échouer" ou "J'ai davantage eu peur du regret que de l'échec", but english expresses it in a more simple (and better) way.

Yep, an optimistic quote, among those i appreciate. Thx for your site, Carson, where i always find something new and interesting.

I'm with you Giorgio, with one addition. Also, and perhaps more importantly, it's never too LATE to start a business either. Married, kids, retired, done with med school, etc. Commit and start working today to get something out there.

I remember reading about her in Fast Company. She rocks. "See a need, fill a need." It's definitely refreshing to to hear about people like her. I wish there were more of them.
