A friend spent 16 years with a company doing a great job at every task he was given. His last job was to help offshore some of the engineering testing to a foreign office half a world away. After that task was completed successfully, he went to work and was told he’d done such a great job, they would’t need him any more. His reward was a reasonable severance and the chance to seek opportunities somewhere else.
The only difference between this man and an entrepreneur is this: The entrepreneur knows his risk and confronts it. Known risk can be managed.
It’s all risk. Acknowledge it. Have a plan.
