Is entrepreneurship overrated?
Are we glorifying Entrepreneurship unduly, as an all-or-nothing pursuit? Do we really need to quit our day job to find and live our dreams?

We still need to pay our bills and fend for our personal and familial needs. It a risk – a huge one at that.
We have to forgo our monthly pay check for an indefinite toil. It is a tight-rope bank balance. It is an arduous journey and we do not know the outcome.
