First off there isn't that much difference in owing/running a business as opposed to investing in one, the investor still has his/her money on the line.
Jesus H Christ, You are kidding right???
In regards to putting your money out on a line, no there isn't.
Actually in a way it takes way more guts to invest, b/c all you are doing is giving somebody money and allowing them to do with it as they see fit, having no to very little influence on your part.
If it fails, you as the investor lose, that's it game over.
In terms of putting in the time and efforts then of course the business owner has more on the line.
