We had the good fortune of connecting with Evan Simmons and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Evan, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Great question! Risk is definitely a two-prong dilemma and has played quite a role in my life and my new journey as an entrepreneur. It is abundantly clear that anything worth striving for takes a great deal of hard work, sacrifice and dedication. However, from my journey its become apparent that it also takes a great deal of risk! Inherently, I have always looked at “Risk” as a form of gambling to an extent. It’s that cliche “catch-22” that you have to leverage something of value, whether it be your career, livelihood, or feeling of being comfortable in exchange for something else that may or may not turn out like you envisioned, or could turn out to be better than your wildest dreams. As a kid, and over the early years of my career I always felt that I was more of an risk adverse person. Unless I knew it was a for-sure thing, I’d shy away from it. I never been one that has understood casino’s and/or card games, as I was always of the mindset that “the numbers/odd’s are against you”. Why would somebody willingly risk money, or hard earned valuables to play a game they were more likely to lose than win? I never understood the concept, and in-turn always shy’d away from risking anything that I didn’t feel I could/would make back. This type of mindset has definitely changed for me and continues to evolve since I became an entrepreneur. Last year, after working the previous 10 years in Corporate America, I came to realize I was just not happy. I had reached what I thought “my goal/dream job” was within the company I had started my career with, and realized that it wasn’t what I had anticipated and more importantly that I just wasn’t happy anymore. At that point, I was confused, upset and anxious….not knowing what to do, or where to go. I had always had the dream of opening my own business and being an entrepreneur, but that dream seemed too scary. Was I ready to drop everything I had worked for, to start something that could possibly flop? It was the scariest decision I had ever made, by I decided to take the risk and made the extremely difficult leap of faith to start my own business . Now 18 months later, looking back on it…..It was the without a doubt the best decision of my life. That journey and the first year and a half of being in business has shown me that risk is a necessary part of any successful individual. Sometimes you have to risk what you have, and where you currently stand to reach the levels you have dreamed of and are destined for!
