From Jeff Bazos, to Mark Zuckerberg, to Elon Musk, all successful entrepreneurs will have taken at least one risk at some point in their career. In order to succeed you must first fail is a mantra well established in the business world, but how many of us play by that rule?
Leaving a steady-paying job to start your own business is a risk in itself and it can often take a lot of time and bravery to take that leap of faith. Having a great business idea and actually seeing it through are two very different things. Unfortunately, many great ideas never become a reality, with fear of failure often preventing aspiring business owners from starting up.
