This blog post is about one of my favorite activities – climbing. It's by many considered an "extreme" sport even though these days most people practice and climb indoors in climbing gyms. A safe, regulated and social activity. But that doesn't make it less amazing. In fact, climbing isn't insane. It's highly focused, rewarding, thrilling and perhaps the best sport for entrepreneurs.

If people respond to your ideas with "but..." you might be on to something.
