The Entrepreneur Center


The idea is that more athletes get regular jobs than play professional sports.  Our aim is to make thousands of SMB entrepreneurs that make money, employ people, pay taxes and pass on real wealth.


When you were a kid, everything you said delighted your parents.  Unfortunately now nobody cares what you say.  You need to be OK with that.


Once an entrepreneur offers to play (put himself/herself at risk, work extra hard, etc) we outght to try to see to it that the best outcomes possible can be achieved.  In particular, we ought to 'conserve energy' so the entrepreneur can do it again - this may mean counseling the entrepreneur to abandon the project (which, like an airplane takeoff ought to be established at the front end, V1?)


It's not about the train, it's about the engineer.  If there's a train wreck, we want the Engineer alive so he can run the next train.
