"If the numbers don't work, then don't do it!? These remarkable words of wisdom were shared by Dane Prevo, co-owner of Infinite Indoor Sports in Washington, Indiana. Dane is co-owner with his wife Leslie. Dane emphasized that you have to take the emotion out of making the business decision. If the numbers don't add up, don't do it. Don't risk going bankrupt or in debt to make your dream work at this time. Dane shared his vision on owning an indoor soccer facility from the time he was 17 years old. This was something he would visit periodically. His experience in working and then being a general manager at an indoor facility added to his bucket of knowledge that helped develop the background knowledge needed.

Dane emphasized the following points to our CEO students in their evolution of starting up a business.
-- Make sure it doesn't affect your personal life.
-- Be prepared for the behind the scenes stuff.
-- Be prepared to not make a profit for the first 3 years.
-- Ask questions of the professionals such as bankers, lawyers, accountants, insurance agents and other contacts in that specific industry. You don't know what you don't know.
-- Ask for the opinion of others. Unbiased reviews are great.

Besides soccer, the facility also offers summer camps, baseball and softball batting cages and is starting up a nerf ball competition in April.
