A regular pay check?
Company of people smarter than you?
Stability of a big firm?
Time with family?
Time with friends?
Time with books?
Time for yourself?
Your hobbies?
A mind free of thoughts?

And what have you gained instead?

A smart entrepreneur will always find a way to balance the losses and gains. For him, the losses don’t exist. They don’t happen. They are merely excuses by people who claim to be entrepreneurs but would have had these losses even if they weren’t!

Entrepreneurship isn’t an excuse to cut off from the world. It’s a choice. To control your losses.
