Entrepreneur and Risk: There are hundreds of jobs, sporting feats and activities that we witness every week that we believe are ‘too-risky’ for us, yet ask the expert performing them and they will hardly even acknowledge any risk at all. Their natural gift, training and experience all make it so. So too with entrepreneurs. To the untrained eye entrepreneurs take risks, to the entrepreneur they are simply taking the next challenge after carefully evaluating the risk and deciding to do it based on their ability to accommodate it. Anyway, the entrepreneur places little faith in assets for security, preferring by far their coping ability regardless of the threat. Just as the concept of risk and reward is fundamental to the finance and investment industry so it is with entrepreneurial living. The entrepreneur is not satisfied with the mediocre life returns of pleasure and comfort preferring instead to strike out for a life of fulfilment, joy, meaning and destiny. These rewards are so highly valued by the entrepreneur that they will risk everything they own to have them. Entrepreneurs then simply invest their lives to attain the highest return and willingly accept the risks that this involves.
