Entrepreneur Syndrome

The description of a syndrome includes a number of essential characteristics, which when concurrent lead to the diagnosis of the particular condition.

Entrepreneur Syndrome starts with incurable optimism, undeniable courage, hopefully a bit of creativity and an idea. These symptoms lead to a perpetual cycle of continuous attempts to successfully develop, market and/or sell this idea. Entrepreneur Syndrome is not curable. In fact, once it is identified, manifestations of this syndrome become more resolute. It may become addicting and is often contagious.

Side effects (which are typically experienced by the entrepreneur's spouse) may include: Nausea, cramping, diarrhea, loss of appetite, dizziness, hair loss, headache, vomiting, blurred vision, severe stomach pain, trouble swallowing, muscle weakness or pain, numbness/tingling in your fingers or toes, loss of sleep, persistent nausea/vomiting and unusual weakness/tiredness. Some may experience very serious allergic reactions to this syndrome. These side effects may include: rash, itching/swelling, severe dizziness and trouble breathing.

Don't say I didn't warn you.
