From the archives: How entrepreneurship is like riding a motorcycle

Four years ago (to the day!), GoForth President and Founder Dr. Leslie Roberts wrote a great blog post about her own experiences with motorcycles – which of course is like the experience of entrepreneurship.

I was about 35 with children of my own when I decided it was time to take my rightful place behind the throttle. Those of you in the learn-by-doing category would say, “Hey, just hop on. You’ll figure it out. After a couple of crashes, you’ll learn what not to do.” Those of you in the learn-by-education category would suggest a class on safe motorcycling first, correct?

Find out how the lessons Leslie learned on her bike are similar to the lessons we can learn as entrepreneurs: How entrepreneurship is like riding a motorcycle.
