Entrepreneurs are risk takers!  Investing in new energy sources is a risky proposition!  The American Cancer Society warns of the health risks of cigarette smoking. We may or may not feel comfortable with taking some risks and reject others outright. Saying no to certain risks does not make us “risk adverse”. In many cases, saying no is the right answer. This is true in leading. We don’t take every risk. We take the risks that our informed judgment suggests we take. With proper execution, the risk has a better than average chance of succeeding. The leader does the work to decide if the risk is worth taking.

Sir Edmund Hillary climbed Mt. Everest. He took risks with each expedition, knew his limits and pushed forward to achieve his goals. He is a great example of a venturesome spirit. He set his goal and relentlessly pursued it. That’s the secret of a venturesome spirit. We don’t need to climb Everest to be a venturesome spirit. We do need to have a dream, never lose sight of it and work daily to achieve it.

SAVE's dream is a better America, building it from the bottom up, once again. Sure, there will be ups and downs, and there will be discomfort. But in the end, if we persevere, there is no way we will fail. The Venturesome Spirit of America lives on!
