What do you think is the biggest myth of building a business?

I think the biggest myth is I must have a lot of money and connections and skills sets to build a business. Incidentally, past few weeks I have been discussing about this topic, personally I think what makes a great business is the people . The founder himself/herself and the people in the business. When the people in the business have a positive, a never -die attitude, perseverance , humble and honest attitude , I believe that would propel a business more than skills sets, money and connections. While these can help but it set a limit as well. Hence, a shout out to those who starting a business , believe in yourself and have the right attitude and that will always bring you further than what you have . It is the inside of you greater than the outside of you .
