Allon Raiz Talks to Entrepreneur Magazine About Having a Unique Business Perspective

What to do When You Want to Give UpAllon Raiz was interviewed by Entrepreneur Magazine and spoke about some of the hardships he’s faced on the road to success with Raizcorp, which is a business based on an entrepreneurship incubator model. He cites some of his major failures, with money and investments lost, as the hardest lessons he’s encountered, but despite all that he had a mentor who believed in him and kept his faith in him.

The book Raiz co-authored with Trevor Waller, What to do When You Want to Give Up: Help for Entrepreneurs in Tough Times, details what he had to do in order to survive his own growing pains in the business world, and what failure taught him about “the other perspective”.

Ask Allon Raiz about his darkest moment and the answer comes quickly. “When my first child was born I had to borrow money from two different people to pay the hospital bill so they would release him. It was about R22 000. I brought him home and was watching him sleeping in his crib and I just collapsed on the floor in tears. I thought, ‘What am I doing? What AM I doing? I can’t even pay for my own baby to come home.’”
