Element 14. Commitment > The Coin-Operated Laundry—Commitment score: 6

The Coin-Operated Laundry—Commitment score: 6

Again, this is a personal item that will rely upon the personal circumstances of the entrepreneur and his or her immediate team. Let’s give this another hypothetical score, a 6. Remember, you will be scoring this yourself so be realistic about how much time you can devote to this enterprise. The grading here should be tough. If the commitment is less than a 10, the enterprise could be in trouble. How do you improve the score? Insist upon exclusivity, either of yourself or of the person you are evaluating. Note that this is not the same as focus; it has everything to do with commitment toward success. You can be 150% committed and still drive a taxi cab to keep yourself alive until the funding arrives.
