To Overcome Fears of Starting a New Business, Mentorship is an Important Key

Survey reveals concerns of small business owners; The UPS Store® offers guidance on "How to Start a Business While Working Full-Time"

Starting a small business can be intimidating. According to survey results released today by The UPS Store of people who own or who have dreamed of owning a small business, starting that business comes in second in terms of the "scariest life-changing" events that they may face, just behind concerns about retirement savings.

The survey, conducted with over 1,700 general consumers and small business owners nationwide, also reveals that when it comes to launching a small business, mentors are an important resource in helping up-and-coming entrepreneurs overcome fears and obstacles.
