Note: Most writings by entrepreneurs are done long after they've succeeded or failed. But much of what entrepreneurs go through early on -- the hard-knocks learning, the emotional roller-coaster ride, the sense of living on the edge -- is by then forgotten and lost. This series -- written in real-time, virtually a diary of Edd's trials and travails -- retains much of that flavor. Reading it through from the start, you'll capture a much better picture of the typical life of the typical entrepreneur.
