Is it a “good” business?

A while back I wrote a blog posting, So you want to start a business? Why??. In it I addressed the more personal issues of “is this a business for you?”.

Recently I have been reminded of the number of people starting businesses that not only don’t have answers to the issues I raised in that post, but who also cannot answer basic questions about “is this just an idea or is it really a feasible business?”.
