Every gambler knows that the secret to surviving is knowing what to throw away and knowing what to keep. Because every hand's a winner; and every hand's a loser.
Kenny Rogers said that, of course, in his song The Gambler.
That's truer than you think for business investment, too. In the end, you either win or lose, there is no middle ground. An investor knows this. Some entrepreneurs know it, though the ones who just barely stay in the black might consider their accomplishment a moderate success. And the entrepreneurs who repeatedly fail will say those lessons were what it took to ultimately win.
But for each pitch and request for money, everybody at the table knows that for that particular transaction, it's win or lose.
It seems there's some rather exciting activity outside of our casinos as well.
