Is Luck A Factor in Business?

In episode #1737, we explore whether luck is a factor in business. Guy Kawasaki said ‘someone once told me that the probability of an entrepreneur getting venture capital is the same as getting struck by lightning while standing at the bottom of a swimming pool on a sunny day. This may be too optimistic.’ This being said, it is wise to prepare well for those lucky breaks when they do come!
