“think sometimes: if this fails, what could I do? You think sometimes about what you would have to do, to put food on the table. But you don’t think about having an alternative career path, because as an entrepreneur, you’re all in.” Brett Herkt is the Co-Founder of BoardPro. Join our community www.gridakl.com
