You’ve Been Lied to if you Think Starting a Business is a Risk

Creativity isn’t divine intervention

It’s a choice

That does not belittle the negative impact current taxation policy has on ensuring the rich get richer and the gap to the middle class swells

The conventional wisdom is that starting a company is a risk

That is not true

Risk is something that can be priced

It is the reason that the insurance industry exists and flourishes

Amazon isn’t one of the richest companies in the world due to risk

They never took risks in order to generate income

They bet on uncertainty

Uncertainty is where almost every Billionaire has emerged from

If you can calculate the odds to succeed you are in an industry with innumerable competitors and you’ll never dominate

Uncertainty means pursuing a dream

But there’s more to it than that

Sweat equity repays you in two ways

And we’ve also been let down by the myth of the Messiah Founder

This dehumanisation must be see for what it is

It’s difficult to start one that solves a problem

It’s almost impossible to build a team for success

By embracing the uncertainty of your ideas you open the door to a whole world of opportunity

All you have to do is take the first step
