Yes, that's true!
I just wish I could find a carbon copy of myself as a programmer! haha!
Starting a successful business will not be easy or else everyone would be doing it, but from all the programmers I talked to so far I don't really see any of them having the same hunger as I do.
If I was a programmer and had a passion for programming; I would love to partner up with business ideas that I thought would be successful and just see where it takes me. And if it doesn't gain success, at least I would get more programming experience in. I don't know, I guess some programmers don't have the same mentality that I do. :)
