One of the biggest business fallacies often espoused by motivational speakers is to “do the business you love”

Listen pal. I won’t advise you to put too much emphasis on that. Rather, I will advise you do the business that will make you money.

When you start to make money, use the proceeds to pursue your dream business, career, charity or fantasy. If you’re lucky to be in a business that you love and is making you money, congratulations. However, do not dump a potentially profitable business because you don’t love it.
I am not a fan of the Big Brother show but I will love to own it because it’s a hugely successful show. I am not a basket ball fan but I will like to own an NBA franchise. I don’t like to hear the word valentine but I can build a business around it.
Business is not romantic as we think. Forget about the wonderful stories you heard about entrepreneurs breaking through. Nothing wonderful about starting a business and failing. There is nothing wonderful about not knowing how to pay the salaries of your staff.
Profit (or raise money) or you die.
