Starting a business can be quite scary, full of its own risks. The thought of employing the wrong person,entering into a partnership in business, taking a new job with new people, entering into a new relationship after numerous or even one emotional breakup, or even making a choice as regards marriage.Everything in life is scary at first — that is why it is said that “Life is a Risk”.
In all the examples above, there is an involvement of people putting their strength and capital (which is not necessarily finances), for its fulfillment.

Think about this.
