The exact failure rate for small businesses is a hotly contested topic in business circles. Some experts believe that publicized failure rates are highly exaggerated, while others stand by their claim that the businesses included in most failure rate estimations only represent the tip of the iceberg.
Even so, most business experts conform to a theory of "thirds": Of all the new business startups, 1/3 eventually turn a profit, 1/3 break even, and 1/3 never leave a negative earnings scenario. According to studies done by the U.S. Small Business Association (SBA), only 2/3 of all small business startups survive the first two years and less than half make it to four years. With numbers like that, it's no wonder so many would-be entrepreneurs think twice before taking the plunge.

"When you face your fear, most of the time you will discover that it was not really such a big threat after all. We all need some form of deeply rooted, powerful motivation – it empowers us to overcome obstacles so we can live our dreams." - Les Brown
