Most people in business say, “start with what you know”. You’ll have a greater chance of success if you know what you’re getting into.
But what if you want to try out something new that is hugely different from anything you’ve ever had experience in?
Should having no knowledge of the business stop you from pursuing it?
One of the many important traits of an entrepreneur is the willingness to explore new horizons and accept risks.
In 2010, mother of 4, Jennifer Holland set out on her own venture she had no experience in.
She launched Throat Scope. It’s a 1-handed illuminated tongue depressor, providing Medical Professionals with 1 free hand to hold a patient’s head whilst the other lights up the mouth and throat; allowing for easy & hassle-free assessment.
Jennifer risked her family’s savings of over $150,000 to start this business – a risky move, but one that has paid off.
