2016 ESR Leadership Conference: "That Fierce Heat of Living" with Samir Selmanović
An entrepreneur is really a bearer of risk. Like Jesus was. If you follow, in this largely inner game, everything that you fear will be put before you. Get ready for embarrassment, failure, and rejection. By befriending our fears, however, we become robustly vulnerable and therefore powerful. We learn to love well and serve the world in creative and productive ways.
