Description

At the most important crossroads of life, there are no signposts.”

Ernest Hemingway

Should you take the entrepreneurial plunge or hike the corporate ladder?

Neither one is risk free, however, having a clear vision of both options will allow you to decide which risks you might be willing to take—Do you thrive on independence and the ability to create? Or, are you looking for a defined work day with a clearer path? Successful entrepreneurs and top managers aren’t born that way, both paths require motivation and passion.

During this talk, Prof. Nazareno Mario Ciccarello Fanfani will walk you through his corporate “hike” and entrepreneurial “plunge” and discuss with you the pros and cons.
