I was recently asked to do a interview with KELO, a local new station, about entrepreneurship and risk taking. I jumped at the opportunity. Everyday we face risk, but I don’t think we recognize the risks we should be paying the most attention to. Every time time you decide to drive somewhere you are taking a risk of getting in a wreck or having your car break down. Anytime you answer a “caller unknown” call you could end up talking to someone trying to scam you. Anytime you eat a gas station hot dog risk is there! I know some of these seem silly or the chances of something bad happening are slim, but I think it helps us recognize the risk that is around us every day.
