I would say without a doubt, yes.
In the spirit of generosity though, let me share a few insider tricks that are rarely talked about in the entrepreneur magazine and conferences:
1. Marketing trumps all: "Good product and good marketing" don't beat "decent product and amazing marketing."
2. You need a real team: Like Bill Gates used to say, "I never did anything alone."
3. Raising capital should be done in precise phasing: Bringing capital from outside sources is rarely wise right at the beginning. Bring in capital once there's proof of your concept rocking and rolling with real momentum.
