I feel more and more like the entrepreneurial life of risk and uncertainty is similar to riding down a windy river in a canoe. You’ll be nervous getting in the boat, unsure of where it will take you, or what troubles might befall you. But no matter where the river takes you, you made the choice to ignore the survival instinct, leap, and accept the risk. It will always be an adventure. Although you’ll never know what’s around the next bend, the hope for what is to come, the hope that pulled you into the boat in the first place, reminds you that you may just discover something that fills you with wonder, and a realization of a dream that satisfies the hunger that made you leave home to begin with.
