#Risk means different things to different people.

For instance, I have taken off in more aeroplanes than I have landed in, like this old photo that dates me back to the 80's (I'm in the huddle by the way)!

When you start a business, you must also assess the risk and know that the risks will change, and so to will be your appetite, depending upon what stage you are at, on your journey.

But when you do implement the right strategies - believe me, your #startupbusiness will have you landing on your feet!

This is a great story giving entrepreneurs based in rural Australia access to resources including finance, skills and mentors. 

While there are some amazing things happening say in the #FinTech world, the #AgriTech industry is also exploding.

Well done SparkLabs - Global Accelerator

I realised today that it is 15 years since climbing Kilimanjaro. 

Looking back, I only now realise what an influence this time had on me.

I remember my guide Steven, a local Tanzanian from Arusha, describing the changes of the ice pack on the summit that he had been observing it for 20 years before my time, as the phenomenon of Climate Change was not even considered a possibility.

But also for me spending time with the Massai, camping out and walking with the chief herdsman for several weeks on and experiencing the ancient culture and wisdom handed down from generation to generation.

At the time I never envisage it would lead me down a new path and the eventual establishment of one of my companies - The Fair Trade Group.

Though we are very small in the scheme of things, we have a huge vision to make a difference - Learn, Lead, Legacy!

So as Steve Jobs said in 2011...

“You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever"

Time indeed is the great leveler - do not waste a moment of it!
