Just out of curiousity, who else here basically dropped everythng and took a chance on something they dreamed about?

I know the guys at Perfect Tones did by opening a shop and so did Orion_95 picking up and moving to be an installer out west.

I know I have done this twice now. First with GCA and now with the X-terminator deadening. This last one has really taken all my wifes and I's energy and life savings. Defenently the hardest and most stressfull thing I have ever done. But now I am finally seeing some light, an boy do I ever feel proud of what I have put together.

So lets hear it, who else took a chance?

sorry to burst your bubble jon, but i didnt take any chances...i have family in both ontario, and bc, so i grew up in both places...i got a job at burlington radioactive installing, and ended up that i decided to move back west to run the service/installation department at one of the indy AVU stores. Both GREAT places to work at, and i would recommend both to anyone, without hesitation. Radioactive to the east, AVU to the west.

Risk = Reward

I had the opportunity to meet Warren Buffet this past week (he recently purchased the company for which I work) and his mere presence reminded me of many things. He is the most down to Earth, intelligent and fascinating man I have ever met. He started with nothing and has become the second richest man in the World.
Typically, being an employee will never make you rich (if that is a goal that you aspire to). The risk takers (ie. entrepreneurs) are the ones that profit and make serious money. Most people don't have the talent, dedication, guts or know-how to run their own businesses. If Hard work, honesty and integrity are traits that you possess, go ahead, take the risk and shoot for the stars.

i havent had the opportunity to take chances as far as business ventures,

but i know for sure that having the right support is absolutely necessary.

be it from family, friends or significant other.

you have to have persoanl harmony before you underake a risky venture i think. it makes eveyrthing easier, even failure.
