When one of the startups I worked for went under, I took a job at a corporation. I managed to talk the company into letting me work remotely. I manage my own time and I'm able to choose my most productive environments. During the time that I’ve been there, I’ve had opportunities to pursue more “entrepreneurial” endeavors. But, because I’m not only allowed to, but enabled to take risks, I feel like more of an entrepreneur than I ever have before- only now my efforts impact a 700 person organization. When businesses trust their employees to take risks, they’re essentially empowering employees to think like CEOs. And, when everyone in your company cares as much as the CEO, you’re in a great position to win. That’s the ROI of risk.
