Entrepreneur Magazine has a list of 5 steps every successful business startup has gone through, which I will briefly put here as a courtesy.  An unnecessary courtesy if you just scroll below to the genius who tried to cut through all the read tape and just write a $300 billion check to get it all started.


  1. Look for that "aha" moment.  Like, "Aha, this guy is trying to cash a $300 billion dollar check!"
  2. Plan ahead.
  3. Value your business. Let's see, How's $300 billion?
  4. Find the right location.  Florida.
  5. Find your first customers.  This guy's restaurant would have served 30 million customers at once. But now we'll never know.
