Starting a business will always be a risk .. there’s no “ safe “ way to do it. At some point , you’ll have to quit your job, not be sure how and if you’ll get paid, and let go of any work benefits you have. AND you’ll be working crazy hours just to keep the doors open !! But you know what – I haven’t met an entrepreneur who says it wasn’t worth it. Everything worth doing in life will be a risk – it’s up to you to decide whether or not it’s a risk you want to take #wednesdaywisdom
