How Entrepreneurs Can Embrace Risk
"The unexpected edge for entrepreneurial success starts with identifying a worthy risk, then having the courage to take it," explains Tom Panaggio in his new book, The Risk Advantage: Embracing the Entrepreneur's Unexpected Edge.
- As an entrepreneur and race car driver, Panaggio has learned that you cannot avoid risk if you want to be a winner.
In The Risk Advantage, Panaggio tells the story of how he and his business partners built two thriving companies: Direct Mail Express (which now employs over 400 people and is a leading direct marketing company), and Response Mail Express (which was eventually sold to an equity fund, Huron Capital Partners).
- With The Risk Advantage he aims to help entrepreneurs face the many situations, predicaments, and crises they'll encounter during their life, and to help formulate their leadership style and business strategy.
The Risk Advantage is a story about an entrepreneurial journey that explores the relationship between opportunity and risk -- two important forces that are necessary for success:
- If you have the courage to embark on your own entrepreneurial journey, you will need a unique advantage to succeed in such a competitive and unforgiving environment.
- You must have an edge. The unexpected edge for entrepreneurial success starts with identifying a worthy risk, and then having the courage to take it.
