I have the desire to one day start my own development business and I read a lot of comments on here where people mention that they plan on one day starting their own shop or that's "that's the dream."
I was just wondering how many of you are taking the steps to make this happen? Also, how many people ever actually pull this off? I always hear about "local guys" who for years put together deals and are successful, but whenever I research the local firms in a local market, all of those guys have the typical backgrounds (MBA and solid experience at national firms).
So what are your plans for making it happen? Do you know anyone who actually has made it happen?
