10 Rules for a Great Startup Idea – Kevin Siskar

I believe everyone should start a business in their lifetime. Whether selling lemonade in the driveway at 6 years old or making handmade greeting cards at 60, it’s an opportunity everyone should experience. So these 10 rules are for anyone who’s ready to take that first step.
