Dr. Myra Hart on Risk-Taking

Dr. Myra Hart was the keynote speaker at the WISE conference in April. She is a professor at Harvard University and one of the founders of Staples.

Dr. Hart noted that risk-taking is often tied to monetary risk where business is concerned. She said that if risk-taking keeps you from getting money -- perhaps risk associated with a sale, getting a loan, etc. -- then it is a problem. In order to overcome it, you need to find ways of making the risk tolerable, if the risk cannot be eliminated.
