Goats and Sheep

Dan Sherman: “Entrepreneurs are goats and all other people are sheep… that is when it comes creating value in exchange for compensation. I don’t mean this in a derogatory fashion. The world needs sheep and the world needs goats. I’m just labelling the two. Us entrepreneurs are always in search of something that will change our world and we’re willing to move (or climb) mountains in order to implement/start/create/initiate it. Whereas sheep are very happy looking down and following the herder’s directions, content to keep with the herd for fear of being devoured by any stray lion. In essense, they are motivated by the fear of what might happen to them if they strike out on their own. Whereas goats are motivated by what they might find on the other side of the barn. If the lions eat me, all well. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.”
