Rediff has a great candid interview with Sanjeev Bikhchandani – CEO and founder of Naukri.com. The amazing story of the making of Naukri.com
For me personally, the section below was very insightful.
It is a myth that entrepreneurs are not risk averse. I must be the most risk averse person I have met in my life. I am really scared of risks. The point is to keep de-risking at every opportunity. So first, I did not quit my job until after I got married knowing there is income in the house. I began to teach on weekends.If I had been single, or my wife was not working — in fact she was the fist angel investor — it would have been a lot more difficult. I may not have done it. These were all de-risking strategies. When you start out you dont know where you are going to end up.
