Now is not the time to stop taking big risks

As we round up 2012 and move into the new year, I’d like to encourage people to not stop taking big risks. To not stop believing. We can’t shy away from all the fears and uncertainty. For the first time, we have more people than ever starting companies and some of these companies have the potential to impact billions of people lives.

This is history in the making and now is not the time to stop.

What’s so incredible about this is that we are not just talking about a better future, but we are building it.

To me, this is an enormous privilege and responsibility, and we must take it seriously.

The speed of thought and innovation is mind-blowing. The costs to start a company have never been lower and the resources out there are rich and plentiful.

We are experiencing an industrial revolution and what I hope is that everyone grabs a hold of it.

The role of us as entrepreneurs is to take the biggest, boldest risks and to look at everything from a long term perspective. It’s not about overnight success, but about cooperation and collaboration. It’s about working together to build a better world.

Come on, let’s commit to using our talents for global impact. Lets focus on the lives of our customers. Lets tend to the seeds that we’ve planted. Let’s think big and empower our nation’s creative entrepreneurs, and attempt to create companies that make a difference.

Who’s with me? Lets ring in another great year!
