Hello World–I wanted to share some interesting videos regarding start ups and entrepreneurs. The firs is a series of videos that I highly recommend–“The Art of the Bootstrap”. It was a conference that was held by Atlassian (the company creates software collaboration tools). http://tinyurl.com/3xleoth
The next video is by a company called Grasshopper (this company creates virtual phone systems for entrepreneurs). It is very cool and inspirational video for those out there that have the entreprenurial bug 🙂 http://tinyurl.com/ca6yqx
The next video talks about teaching kids to aspire to be entrepreneurs. http://tinyurl.com/2f2hx97
All of these videos have great points. The theme that runs through all these videos is that the traits that really make an entrepreneur are passion, having a vision and persistence. One interesting point that Glen Kelman, CEO of Redfin (speaking at Atlassian) made was that he felt as if he were a “fraud” and if you have that feeling that you really are an entrepreneur–that we all have these doubts and the challenge is to figure out how to overcome them.
Hmmm–really makes you think…
Enjoy the videos and please feel free to post comments and start a discussion!
