Possible risk to be considered when starting Open Source Solution Companies

Hi All,
Like to get advice from people who had taken the bold step in starting
their own initiatives to generate income.
I was not able to answer properly when some one asked me the question, what
are the risks which some one need to face.
Like to hear from people who had already delve into entrepreneurship on
open source solution.
We could brain storm this idea and make it as a document with case studies
and put it up in the new web site.
Thanks
Joseph John
