Joel: As Seth Godin, who is a great business thinker, said, “The safest thing you can do is be risky and the riskiest thing you can do is be safe.” I think that it’s true.
And, the story is very simple, but it really did create a very different way of thinking: So-and-so likes to make apple pies and she’s great at making apple pies.
It gets really busy, and she says “I want to open an apple pie shop”.
