So I have money. I have business ideas. But when it comes time to execute on the elaborate plan I have written, covered all of the bases, etc - I come up with some excuse as to why I shouldn't do it. Perhaps I need a partner, maybe I think it won't work. Maybe it won't be as profitable as first thought. I get cold feet when I go to pull the trigger... How do I get over it and grow some balls?

Others might be right that you should just jump in. You also might explore some "low cost probes" into the venture. For example, call prospective customers whom you trust and ask for their insights -- and don't forget to ask "If I really did this, would you be a customer?"

Build your confidence that this is the right thing to do. Entrepreneurship requires many different traits, but unrelenting confidence is critical. Best of luck!
