Living your dream is a big step! Joining a group of other people you believe to be like minded is unnerving, especially if you have been burned before. One of my radio show commentators has a motto with her company that says "Together is Better". I believe this, but it is not always easy to work with others. There could be a perceived personality conflict, there could be some integrity issues, or it could be that you all just don't work well together, but you like each other otherwise. That last one is the strangest to me, "I like you as a person, I just can't work with you."
Take into account that being an entrepreneur is an independent endeavor that can be supported by others. You will have to figure some things out that were not taught to you in a class room setting. Have no fear though, there are others out there who have left some guidance for you.
Give yourself a hand for taking a chance on YOU, by living your dream. Then give yourself another hand for joining a network of others that are heading in the same direction you are.
Enjoy your day!
