Last week I went to a skillshare class on raising seed funding. Chris Dixon had tons of great insight and for anyone starting a company I highly recommend the classes skill share offers. They are cheap and a great way to network with other like minded individuals.
I’m going to post his blog post here for those of you who couldn’t make it and as a personal record just for me.
Everyday for the rest of my life I will start posting things that I am learning. Well probably not everyday. Lets just consider that the first learning of the day.
Today though, I will attempt to start writing blog posts. Many will start off as short format posts but my hope is that they turn into long well written thought pieces.
So todays learnings. ahem.
Its not easy creating a startup. Its not easy to create something out of nothing. Its not easy to take your vision and bring it to life. Its not easy. And its because its not easy, that when we do create something, its very beautiful thing…
Not in the physical sense but emotionally. If it was easy, well then everything would be accomplished. We would have 250 mpg cars, teleportation, life on other planets, peace.
I regress but the point is that we often take the things we interact with for granted. On a daily basis but it takes lots of failed attemps and a lot of perserverance to actuall make something.
Today I woke and though that I would make something. Tomorrow I’m sure that I will make something, but everyday that passes I find more challenges and everyday that passes I find that I myself, cannot do it alone. I need a team of people who are just as dedicated if not more to help me create something.
