"It is only by being bold that you get anywhere. If you are a risk-taker, then the art is to protect the downside."
The inspirational message for the self employed from this quote is:
Do not hesitate to make bold decisions. It is important to realize there may be or will be risks by implementing the decision. Do not be afraid of the risks. Some people do not want to make a decision due to the potential risks involved. The better strategy will be to make the decision and the risks involved in a decision but to protect you against the possible risks or the potential downside of the decision.
