Separating Entrepreneurs from Employees

As part of a column I do for MoneySense Magazine, I was talking to a financial planner the other day who specializes in serving business owners. He says he's spotted an intriguing difference between entrepreneurs and employees.

An employee's greatest fear, he says, is not receiving a cheque every week.

An entrepreneur's greatest fear, by contrast, is having just one source controlling their paycheque.

So are entrepreneurs risk-oriented -- or risk-averse?
(Leave a comment, if you're not comment-averse.)
