The entrepreneur teaching Japan how to take more risks
Business owners are some of the most optimistic and sometimes the craziest people in the world. Of course, they will not take risks and start their own business if they think it will fail.
All entrepreneurs are convinced their idea is a great one, and it will be one of the few that will succeed. It is important to feel this way, otherwise we would never take the risk to invest our own money, or borrow from others to start our business.
The success of a business greatly depends on its owner. When the owner fails, the business will also fail. Your business must compete to succeed. There is always someone out there, trying to win over as many of the customers that you are targeting.
Business is a competitive struggle so you must do your best in making decisions and coming up with creative ideas to make your business grow and eventually succeed.
Therefore, you need to have discipline. Anywhere there is competition, there must be discipline. You could have the most unique skill, or the best product idea, but your business will never achieve its full potential, if you do not have discipline – discipline as to when to take or not to take risk.
When talking about risk, BBC.com has an interesting article about a man from Japan who is teaching his country to take more risk. His name is William Saito.
