Do you have what it takes? A StartupBus Round Table
Entrepreneurship is likely to be the most difficult path you ever embark on. It is the road less travelled and has been described as "jumping of a cliff while building a parachute on the way down". Why do we do it? Why do thousands of individuals who know the danger take a step down this unworn path? The StartupBus Round Table talks to the individuals who participate in an annual global event that provides hundreds of individuals the opportunity to explore the world of entrepreneurship, hear from them on their self-discovery journey, the people they have met, and their experiences as entrepreneurs.

Creative Risk-Taking with Hope C. Donnelly
With 10 years in pro sports entertainment, Hope Donnelly took a risk each time she set foot in an audition or in an arena to perform.  Isn't that a lot like starting a business?  Stepping out into an arena, exposed and vulnerable to failure.  But as entreprenuers, that is exactly what we do, set to repeat.  
This is not a new story, of risk, failure, and shifting your business model, but it is the story of the revival of the Rialto Theatre, and her other business that took a back seat until recently, 8-Count Productions.  Hope believes in taking risks, "daring greatly", and takes an honest approach to sharing these experiences.
