That’s a good comparison I hadn’t fully considered. But an important one for entrepreneurs to recognize going in.

Also, in contrast with maybe a director or author, I think it might be better for entrepreneurs to go in with a mindset of allowing their creation to expand beyond their initial intentions. This way they can better position themselves to step away from their own companies.
