This a well expressed and genuine article... Thanks a lot for sharing your experience. Entrepreneurship has become "cool" lately so everyone wants to jump in.... But your stats makes it clearly that not everyone succeeds.
I left my consulting job a few years ago but I knew I didn't want to become an entrepreneur who runs a company with employees. I am happy to be a one man army who works on things he enjoys and earns good enough to be happy and enjoy life. In the end, happiness and peace of mind is what matters :)
