I was just watching a video from a presentation I gave at David Vogelpohl’s AUSOME meetup at Capital Factory in Austin, TX, and I realized I never shared it.
I talked about how going through two tough times in less than a year became the catalyst for me to go out and live the life I wanted to live.
Plenty of people start their journey as an entrepreneur because they just have it in their gut. I was trying to be satisfied with working in a cubicle for somebody else.
I was never satisfied with it, though. But it took a couple of shitty days to make me brutally aware that fear of failure is nothing compared to waking up one day and realizing that you tolerated life, instead of living it.
One of the people in the audience was uphappy about the lack of practical advice I shared, and she posted a review about it. Looking back, she never did respond to my comment on her blog post.
No sleep was lost.
Thanks to David and the Marketing Clique crew for having me at the meetup.
