Deconstructing a Struggling Start-Up

Think you're ready to tell you boss to shove it and leave the rat race of a 9-5 and take on the adventure of a start-up? Just remember, for every Yahoo! (NASDAQ:YHOO) and Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), there are thousands of ideas that are just crazy, stupid, or poorly planned.

Take some advice from Philippe, co-founder and CEO of MyCarpoolStation.com, who is now running like crazy from his own creation. Take a little time to read his story on how the start-up he created to change the world and make a little money just didn't work.

Before you step out to follow your dreams, just make sure you are ready to suffer a fair amount of unexpected consequences (maybe some good ones, probably some bad ones).
