Do You Play the Lottery?

LottoBy their nature, entrepreneurs are like gamblers. They are willing to take huge risks in order to win it all. In many ways the Lotto is a perfect representation of the start-up world. The odds may be against you, but the payoff can be immense.

If you are wondering if you are cut out for the world of start-up ventures, take a look at your ability to accept risk. As part of this, look at little things like whether or not you play the lottery. Do you feel it is a waste of money or are you intrigued by the prospect of a big payoff.

The odds of winning the lottery are slight, yet the odds of becoming the next big, big thing are equally as small. In fact, you have a better chance at winning the lottery than you do at becoming the next Google or Facebook. As a result, playing the lotto might not be a bad thing, especially if it reflects your outlook on new ventures. A successful entrepreneur must be optimistic, willing to accept risk, and constantly reviewing their odds in hopes of making the best educated decision (in a world with constantly uncertainty).
