Want to start your own business? CNN Money asks, "how much money will you need?" I still contend that the government, the same government which encourages small business, is the greatest hinderance to the small business owner. Screw up the taxes and suffer the rest of your life.
Btw, CNN’s answer was $10,000. I started my first real endeavor with $38,000 and pumped another $20,000 of my own money into it before going belly up.
