A lot of people love the idea of starting their own business, especially creatives. They can be stuck in a job or career that provides them with no passions or enjoyment, yet alone a chance to flex those creative muscles, and so their own business seems like the only viable option.

Without the right surroundings, getting that foothold in the market will only become even harder than it already is.
