If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

Do you have the stomach to follow your convictions? Take everything
you have and put it down on one shot? Your reputation, savings,
assets and resources and put them on the line? There is no secure
safety net. Entreprenuers and their companies live and die on their
own merits. If you can't survive without a subsidy or a support
structure, then when it disappears so will you.

There is risk in every stage of startups. There is risk in everything you do.
