Editor’s note: Seattle area entrepreneurs David Nilssen and Jeff Levy provide practical advice and tips for those considering starting a new business in their book  “Making the Jump into Small Business Ownership.”

“We are trying to educate and inspire individuals to be self-reliant,” says Levy, a founder of Windswept Capital and former executive at Flow International who is a frequent speaker on the topic of entrepreneurship. In the two excerpts below, Nilssen and Levy discuss some of the challenges that entrepreneurs face in starting out. But they also nudge readers to make the leap. “There is a point in our life where we must stop ‘getting ready to get ready,'” they write.
