Get moving or get out of the way. Business leadership is full of risks.
When I was in middle and high school, I remember a number of students who found ways to make money; such as selling candy and pencils in the hall, doing other people’s homework or giving people rides home in their cars. There was always a risk of getting caught, which wasn’t without consequences, but this didn’t stop the people who were really committed to having some money.
Risk is still a very real part of business ownership today, and the consequences could be more devastating, in some cases. Regardless. Business leaders, if you want to build a strong business, you have got to learn to eat risk for breakfast. When you started your company, you had only a 30% chance of being successful. Do what it takes. Be tough.
