Always look on the bright side. Even if that bright side is the fiery explosion chasing you down a hallway.

There comes a point in any business venture where you have to take a few risks. Sometimes that risk means expanding into a new market. Sometimes it means new spreadsheet software. And sometimes it means blowing yourself up before someone else can. But think about it: would you rather someone else blow you up, or would you rather you blow you up.

Place your hands firmly on the rudder of your own explosive fates, says I!
