I'm not sure if people in midlife place too much weight on risks OR if the youngsters place too little weight on risks :) My husband runs a small business that he started at a pretty young age. Looking back, he's kind of shocked by the courage he had to get into that field at the time he did it. Plus, he swears he wouldn't be able to do something similar at this stage of his life. Too much weight on risks now, too little then... are the two even the same?
