A recent article by Deborah Mills-Scofield asks: Are Entrepreneurs Really More Comfortable with Risk?

In a recent article for HBR Deborah Mills-Scofield articulates the theory that “most entrepreneurs aren’t more risk-o-philic than anyone else — they just define risk differently.”.

Mills-Schofield details that “For them (entrepreneurs), risk isn’t as defined by losing tangibles (e.g., income, benefits, “stuff”) as it is by losing intangibles: fulfilling a passion that won’t let go, defining their own sense of purpose, sating their own curiosity, looking themselves in the mirror”.”.
