To create something from the ground up, working in a field you understand and love, be your own boss, and potentially rake in a whole lot of money are all very enticing propositions, and it is understandable why so many people would be drawn to entrepreneurship. Unfortunately, starting a business is very hard. There are hundreds of things to consider and it is possible to do everything right in the starting of your business and still fail.

Maybe it was not the right time. Maybe there was too

There are a lot of ways to get around when you need to be somewhere. Sometimes in a city (Say for an example, the city of Boise) the best and most economical way of getting around is by riding a bike. For most of the state of Idaho, a bicycle is not going to get you far. There is a lot of space between things that you might want to get to and it is far enough that you are only going to try and make that on a bike if you are a cross-country cyclist betting ready for a major tournament. That is probably not most people, though I suppose there is always a chance. This is not the case for a city like Boise. The area is more spread out than other cities, but things are still pretty close together and you can consider getting from place to place on a bike

One of the best-kept secrets of the northwestern United States is the delicious mountain huckleberry. While it’s no secret that the huckleberry is delicious and even the state fruit of Idaho, try asking any local where they pick their berries! This delicious fruit is native to colder, mountainous regions and the mountains of Coeur d’Alene are home some of the best huckleberries in the region. These dark purple berries are a great source of nutrition and bloom ever year from August to late September.
