It's risky NOT to be an entrepreneur

Everyone talks about how risky entrepreneurship is - and if you just take a blind leap it can be. But as you have seen from our postings here at the Corporatepreneur we don't think entrepreneurship has to be risky. In fact with a solid plan it can significantly decrease the risks and stresses in your life.

i believe starting a business on the side while still working a full-time job is a safe way to go. Please be conscious of any COI's (conflicts of interest) or other issues with you current job, but as long as you aren't competing with your employer either for your time or customers - you should be fine. And then you can keep that steady paycheck while growing something on the side.

Here are the risks of NOT trying to start your own business with some articles from some of my other favorite entrepreneur blogs.

1) You could become "that guy" or "that gal"
2) Your corporate job isn't secure anyway
3) You risk not living up to your TRUE potential!

I think the Corporatepreneur approach offers the not only the safest way to start a business - but the safest way to live your life. You keep doing what you are doing with the upside of finding your own entrepreneurial niche!
