On Fear and Confidence

There is one thing I know for sure about being an entrepreneur (or following any dream for that matter). The difference between success and failure lies in your ability to overcome fear. Everybody fails. Those with the greatest success, often failed the most. Albert Einstein failed his first entrance exam to university.
