The entrepreneurial record is writ full of entrepreneurs who "should" succeed but don't, and who "shouldn't" succeed, but do; entrepreneurs who almost crashed and burned, only to barely survive and to take off, and those who were taking off, only to suddenly lose altitude and fall. Entrepreneurs' defiance of our expectations is so prevalent that it almost always has a surprising quality-if it weren't a surprise, typically greeted by a great deal of skepticism in the early stages, someone would be doing it already.
