Life is about exploring and sometimes that means taking risks. Being and entrepreneur is risky, but the rewards, both monetary and in freedom, are worth it in my opinion. As I round out recording the first 100 episodes of Entrepreneur’s Enigma (not all published), which I have to add is to me, I realize there is a red thread (h/t Tamsen Webster) of a narrative going through almost all of my guests’ stories. They went into entrepreneurship and took the risk for the freedom and in turn have fun with what they were doing.
Risk taking can be scary. If it’s not, it’s not really a risk, is it? But most times taking the jump to work for yourself where you’re in control of your destiny is well worth the risks to get to the rewards.
