Business ventures often fail even when market demand is demonstrated and evaluated by peers, and when the project team is capable of producing the work. In this informal case study based on the author's own experiences, the topics of market size and fit, team size, human dynamics, business validation, and interaction design are explored to form a picture of how a business with seemingly promising prospects could still fail. Specifically, the challenges faced by small or single-person implementation teams are discussed, with suggestions for overcoming these challenges to produce more realistic and viable businesses. Most entrepreneurs enjoy reading the success stories of technology companies and their leaders, both local and global. Depending on the entrepreneur's disposition, these stories can be motivational, such as when the entrepreneur can identify with the hero, or they can add pressure, such as when the hero sounds less capable than the entrepreneur perceives themselves to be.
