How many of you have had a business idea but never tried to realise it, and why?

I am curious to see how many carry around an idea in their head but have always refrained from trying to make it happen. It could be an idea you had at one point in the past or one that has been on your mind for years and still is. No need to share the idea.
Let me hit this off: I have an idea for an online business for about 4 years now. I am halfway done with the business plan but stopped due to lack of time - I really should get back on it.
Your turn geeks :)

networkn: I am a pretty reasonable cook, and have always though the steak restaurants in NZ were pretty average, even the long-established ones. Restaurants are high risk, and I am reasonably risk adverse. There have been other smaller restaurant ideas I've thought would pan out like getting an American franchise, however still would like to do it at some stage.


One of my wife's best mates is an award-winning chef turned restaurant and menu consultant.  The constant I hear is the trouble hiring and retaining reliable staff, both for restaurants and for high-end fast-food type places.  For example, we were supposed to spend Easter with this couple, but most of the plans were abandoned after 3 staff from the current 'project' resteraunt called in sick and she felt she had to fill in to keep the doors open.  It's a challenging and competitive industry, so if you do decide to move ahead one day, I would encourage better than average planning.


And let us all know so we can be your beta testers cool



I have a couple of relatives who are running Cafe's. I could never do it, the hours are horrendous and staffing a nightmare.
