It is understandable why entrepreneurs and business owners would have a higher tolerance for risk. After all, some of the biggest thrills in business come from high-risk, high-reward situations.
While boldness in business has tremendous upsides, there are some downsides to taking too many risks with your broader financial future. For example, counting on your success in business to make up for a lack of financial planning, personal saving, and investing is one such risk that many business owners might take.
The thinking is that if I work hard enough and grow my business I will build enough wealth for my retirement. While that may pan out, it is too risky to call this a good retirement plan. You need a plan that considers all of the possibilities, not just the desirable ones.
