Would you start a business that you know you could make a profit doing but just don't love?

For example, I'd bet I could open a pizza place but I'd hate making pizza all day. Or start a Pennysaver type newspaper, but that would be a bore. Sell real-estate.

If you don't love doing it, don't. That is my advice. I tell my kids that when they graduate college, they should be happy with whatever field they decide to go into. Life is too short to be just working for the almighty dollar. Of course, some people may have to temporarily take a job they don't particularly care... More

I would, I mean money is money, and in this economy it means a lot right now. You don't have to love a job to have it, many people I know don't like their jobs but they do it to keep the money coming in, food on the table, water and electricity on, etc.

The money part of it sounds great. Everybody loves to profit. I personally can't see starting a business though, if you don't enjoy what you do. In my opinion it would not last long an fold if you didn't love what your doing. You got to put your heart and soul into it to make it good, work and last... More

I know myself that IF my heart isn't honestly into something 100% I would get bored with it & would loose interest in it. Therefore it wouldn't even be worth my while. I DID start a business I just loved, poured out a fortune into it, now I'm stuck with stacks of boxes of silk flower arrangements, 5 gal. buckets of... More

No, I absolutely would not. I am just not that mercenary. I like to spend my life doing things I love with people I love. I think if you do what you really love and have a passion for, you'll be totally excellent at it and the money will come anyway :)
