Yesterday, Chris Rock delivered a great monologue about diversity, but there was something more to it, mostly when he thought about boycotting the whole thing…

How come there’s only unemployed people to tell you to quit something? No one with a job ever tells you to quit.

Funny enough I found the same analogy with the startup world: how come there’s only employed people to tell you to start something? No one unemployed ever tells you to start your own company. 

The answer is quite simple: because it’s a risky business and everyone prefers someone else taking that risk for them and then afterwards jump into the bandwagon when it’s already on a steady pace.
