How many business's have you all had before you found your breadwinner?

My first business was a success by normal standards (200k a year +) but not by fast-lane standards.
My first 3 ventrures were not actual failures - I just found that it wasn't for me. Investment "lost" was very small. Exceptional value for practical education.

My billionaire friend failed I think he said 50 times before he got it right. He was "washed up"at about age 40 but by 50 he was extremely wealthy. Everyone looks at him now in awe but they have no idea what he went through.

All of my ideas have made some profit, but none of them so far should be considered a success.
