Scott Rocklage is a heavy promoter of the entrepreneur’s way of doing business and encourages anyone to consider going into business for themselves before working a regular 9-5 job. He believes that people should focus on taking measured risks and that people live their happiest and fullest lives when they can be their own boss.
What makes Rocklage extremely productive is the fact that he is very organized and is good with managing his time. This skill is missing from many other entrepreneurs, and he suggests that people would be more successful if they focused on sticking to what they do best.
He has commented that it is when people begin to try to take on too much at once, without cementing in what they do best, that they might see their business not grow as much as they would hope.
Scott Rocklage has said that the idea for the name 5AM Ventures came out of the fact that the science-based venture capital firm focuses on helping businesses get off of the ground in the early stages of their development. Since 5am is very early in the morning, it just kind of worked out to be a fitting name.
Looking into the future, Rocklage hopes to continue helping people and businesses to build the best enterprise they possibly can.
