Being an Entrepreneur is Like Walking a Tightrope Across Niagara Falls

By Office Space TorontoIn standard18th June, 2012

Watching Nik Wallenda cross Niagara Falls on a tightrope the width of 3 pennies makes one reflect on the challenges of running your own business and the risks that are involved. Sometimes being an entrepreneur is like walking a tightrope across Niagara Falls. It may not be as dangerous as the walk that Nik Wallenda took, but it can be almost as scary.

Many of the people who rent office space Toronto are entrepreneurs who have built their business from the ground up and have shouldered the risks of starting a business on their own, without a safety net. Not having a safety net does not mean they have not taken precautions to be safer. The fact that they rent Toronto office space without a lease is just one sign that they are cautious about signing a long-term lease that would cost them lots of money to break, even if they need to break the lease to move into larger facilities. When asked if being an entrepreneur is like walking a tightrope across Niagara Falls, one Telsec office space client smiled and said “I wish I had the safety harness in my business”.

Aerialist Nik Wallenda battled brisk winds and thick mist Friday to make history. Becoming the first person to walk across Niagara Falls on a tightrope was no small feat. Yes, Nik Wallenda wore a harness that was tethered to a safety line in event of a slip or fall. One could say being an entrepreneur is like walking a tightrope across Niagara Falls – without a safety line or safety net.

One office for rent Toronto client mentioned in the kitchen today that she agreed that being an entrepreneur is like walking a tightrope across Niagara Falls, except that by walking across the border from the USA to Canada on a tightrope let him clear customs in just a few seconds. She mentioned that the last time she drove down to New York State for business and crossed the border back into Canada to back to her Toronto office space for lease, she had to wait in line at customs for over an hour.
