If you have a great business idea, bet on yourself. Go out on a limb and take a risk. After all, that is where the fruit is at!
A quote from the book The Millionaire Next Door:
Twenty percent of the affluent households in America are headed by retirees. Of the remaining 80 percent, more than two-thirds are headed by self-employed owners of businesses. In America, fewer than one in five households, or about 18 percent, is headed by a self-employed business owner or professional. But these self-employed people are four times more likely to be millionaires than those who work for others.
