    Thank you, @Steffi Dsouza! Attitude and mindset, and the willingness to work untraditional hours and pour everything you have into your endeavor, is truly key for launching and running a successful business.

    I think the failure aspect is an underrated point, @Levi Leyba, MBA. It's so easy to feel defeated when you fail or something doesn't go your way. It makes quitting seem like an easy thing to do. But even the most successful entrepreneurs have failed at some point. A big part of entrepreneurship, as you point out, is to learn from your mistakes and from those around you to perfect your venture. Perseverance is key.
