I was very scared when I was 19 years old.
I had just committed to paying several hundred thousand pounds, move to a different country where I didn’t even speak the language and ended up working over 80 hours a week. I literally had no time to eat a lot of the time and spent sleepless nights worried sick about what was going to happen.
But the commitment was huge, so I had to make it work.
Starting medical school, in my view was my first start up. And I made it work where countless of others failed.
Six years after starting I got a piece of paper saying that I was a doctor and my life dramatically changed for the better.
People at work seem to get scared when I now tell them I’m starting my first business and investing my money into it.
I believe there is a simple formula to making money/achieving something worthwhile: Risk = necessary to achieve anything worth doing.
Medical students work longer and harder for a life in the future that others simply won’t be able to have.
Entrepreneurs are willing to take the risk that others won’t, to potentially live a life that others can only dream of.
