The long road to internet success, part 3: We veer into fear
Part 3 of the series, “The long road to internet success” Read Part 2 here.
Last week we said that part 3 of this long journey would be about content, but a universal theme kept coming up: fear. Maybe not fear like horror movie jump scares, but something even more terrifying: the fear of failure. The fear, in my case, of getting on stage … and failing. So we’re going to veer here a bit and talk to some amazing entrepreneurs and/or comedians about overcoming the obstacles in your head.
Boulder Startup Week: Innovators, educators, tacos
Boulder Startup Week is May 15th – 19th and we’ve yet again barreled into as many venues as possible. We’re hosting the world-renowned Hack the Dot on Monday night, will be buying coffee for the Tuesday morning Boulder Open Coffee Club, will shoot a lot of video all week long and, just in case we’ve overstayed our visit to Boulder, we’re making amends with free tacos on Wednesday.
The long road to internet success, part 2: When you’re consistently not consistent
Part 2 of the series, “The long road to internet success” Read Part 1 here.
I’ve read that people who have children live longer. Not sure if that’s a punishment, but here it’s helpful to illustrate success. I’m not saying if you don’t have children you’re not a success. I have three and I’d love to hear from some non-breeders about how they sleep in and have extra cash. (And maybe in a sultry English accent not unlike Keira Knightley if at all possible.)
The point here is that kids are like goals: you gotta nurture them or they’ll never move out of the basement. And apparently that’s where I fail on a regular basis. I’m not tending to my goals and they’re wilting in the dark.
