There are plenty of entrepreneurs and business owners who skydive, swim with sharks, or race cars to let off steam in their downtime. And that’s great. But what if you don’t want to save the adrenaline rush for your days off?
What if you want to build a business around the very thing that gets your blood pumping?
Should You Take the Plunge?
Some people will tell you it’s impossible. Most people will tell you not to quit your day job. But here are two successful thrill-based business owners who will tell you a different story:
My husband was only 28 years old when he was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor.
A few weeks earlier I had quit my job to help him focus on growing our rental business. But suddenly, instead of helping him manage properties, I was helping him get through brain surgeries and rounds of radiation and chemo—at a hospital nearly 100 miles away from where we lived. Our world was completely upended.
Thankfully, he survived the Hell that is brain cancer. And even though we were absentee owners for nearly two years, our business survived, too.
But what if this happened to you? Could your business survive without you there to oversee its day-to-day operation?
