Rethinking the Risk of Entrepreneurship – Forbes

So if you’re thinking about trying your hand at entrepreneurship, here’s how to keep the “risks” in perspective.

Job Security Doesn’t Exist

You Don’t Have to Bet the Farm

Of all the business-related angst I’ve witnessed, nothing seems more haunting than the experience of regret. That mournful curiosity about “what could have been”—if only you had done something differently and given your business venture a shot. It’s a feeling much worse than failure.

The truth is, the risks associated with entrepreneurship are all relative. And while you can certainly find ways to increase and decrease what you stand to lose, it’s not fair to write off the possibility of starting your own business just because it’s too “risky.”
