How Entrepreneurs Look at Things

My wife and I were driving with an executive of one our companies. We were joking about how every time someone talks about a problem, we see a new company.

Later on, Bhairavi brought up an idea she had. I saw great potential. In fact it would be more of a clinical trial situation than technology hurdle. Meanwhile, you could see the, "Here they go again," rolling of the eyes with our exec. As sharp as she is, all she sees is risk.

When most people see risks, entrepreneurs see great potential. We like 10% probabilities because there are great rewards if and when we make it work. And we feel we can make things work.

If you are going to think, think big.
