If you’ve ever been to Las Vegas, Atlantic City, or other gambling locales, you know that there is an inherent risk when you place a bet. When you invest in the stock market instead of placing your money in a regular saving account at your local bank, you do so hoping for a larger return (or reward) on your money. While the risk is less than that in a casino, there is more risk in the stock market than a savings account.

With those three examples you can see how the greater the risk, the great your chance of losing your money – but also, if it works out in your favor, the greater the reward.

What Is Your Entrepreneurial Risk Level?
Risk Level 1 - The Savings Account
This 'savings account' entrepreneur will start a business with no borrowed money with the intention that if it works, they'll reinvest part of the profits from each sale to grow their business. This option is for lack of a better description is 'the slow and steady' no risk option. Everything is about saving money and keep the risk as low as possible. Even when savings account entrepreneurs hear about the success other entrepreneurs experience by using certain strategies such as attending seminars, joining a mastermind, or hiring a business coach, they will usually not do so unless the business can afford it the cash up front, and success is almost guaranteed.

Risk Level 2 – The Stock Market
As an analogy, the stock market entrepreneur wants more of return than the paltry 0.5 percent a savings account pays. They are usually comfortable investing (key word!) some of their money in the stock market knowing that while there is some risk, the potential reward is much better than a saving account. In business, this means being open to spending or even borrowing to grow their business at a faster rate of speed. In essence, they're gambling on their future – or some may say, they're putting their money where their mouth is. When it comes to investing in faster growth, they are more open to using money they do not currently have in order to get the higher payoff, faster. Clearly this is riskier than the savings account entrepreneur, but with calculated risks come larger rewards.

Risk Level 3 – The Casino
The Casino Entrepreneur has a high tolerance for risk and an even higher level of confidence that basically says, "There's no way that I can lose; I'm in it to win it, and I insist on playing big or I'm going home!" If you read about and study some of the most successful large brands and companies today, you will see most fit this profile: from Steve Jobs and Apple to Fred Smith and Federal Express. Yes, they gambled big and they won big. In fact, with FedEx it was impossible to start a company that had jet planes without going all in and batting for the fences. One last thing about being a Casino Entrepreneur. They know that not every bet pays off and are comfortable losing some hands. Because in the end, nothing erases failure like a big success!
