The lists I have read don't cover everything you need to consider when starting a business. I offer one area to consider outside of money

Malla: Your post resonates with my post of November 26. Here is an excerpt:

"I got a wake up call the other day when I did an oxidative stress test and an arterial pulse waveform analysis. The conclusion is that I need to take better care of my body, including my heart. I will increase my intake of antioxidants and a basic amino acid called arginine."

There are probably 50 important traits an entrepreneur should have but I believe that " being healthy " tops it all. A healthy entrepreneur is productive at work, and has the potential to achieve his goals. Everyone should give this adage much weight "Health is wealth" or shall I say "Health makes wealth"?

Hi Malla,

Thanks so much for sharing this post with the BizSugar community. They always say, at least you have your health. But, of course, this is one of the first considerations for entrepreneurs, not just an afterthought. Entrepreneurs must be incredibly focused and incredibly energetic for the tasks they face. Maintaining good health is the best way to make sure you'll be up for the challenge.

Great post, Malla. I agree, it's important to keep your health up to par, especially when pursing big business goals. It's easy to get comfortable when working online from home. I work, run my blog, and go to college all online so I spend a huge hunk of my time sitting at the computer snacking on the 6th food group :). I know I don't get as much exercise and I should be. In the new year I'm planning to make a conscious effort to move around more. Not necessarily loose weight, just get more activity in my life. Thanks for the reminder and again, great post!

Comprehensively written. While growth often means more financing, that isn’t necessarily the case. Sometimes a strategic alliance can grow your business in ways that money can’t. Thanks for sharing.
