Business Risk and Motives for Risk

Taking risk is a fundamental aspect of business, one that is crucial to understand. An often overlooked aspect of understanding risk is a proper understanding of the motive for taking risk. A question we pose at Emerging Business Services to ourselves and to our clients is “Do we have a correct motive for taking risk?”

Understanding the motive should be given first priority in determining which business risk to take. At Emerging Business Services we base our motives for taking risk on

“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.” ~1 John 4:9

In short, God took a risk to help us reach something that we could not reach for ourselves. At Emerging Business Services, we take risk focused on helping others reach something they could not necessarily reach for themselves. We would love an opportunity to discuss how having this motive has benefited us, our clients and how it can benefit your business.
