Video of the Day: I am a Struggling, Broke Entepreneur

Keywords: entrepreneur, venture capital (VC)

Preeti:
"I'm doing this for 3 reasons: 1) Fame and Fortune, 2) Drive traffic to my site, 3) Help others (not in order of priority :) I am going to tell you about my experiences as an entrepreneur, given that I'm not yet a complete 'success' you can either take them as things you should 'DO' or 'NOT DO'.

I am 34 years old, am a serial entrepreneur who can't seem to quit even though I've not yet made any money from any of my companies, currently run a company called CopperPages.com, and have no social life whatsoever. And I'm broke. And I'm burned out. Sick of just running companies to 'LEARN', that was fine for my 20s, now in my 30s its 'SHOW ME THE MONEY!' I think the money is coming soon, the Tipping Point is almost here, stay tuned...."
