Lately, I’ve been on the road often for business and pulling nearly all-nighters and packing the day so tightly with meetings that literally, we would have 20 minutes for lunch if that. We’ve been investing heavily in a new space and building a technology we think will transform the living room. It means that we’re heads down cranking away on product, strategy, and business development. We’re planning on launching the product in the next few weeks. It’s an energetic yet highly stressful time. Are you out there living the dream, surviving on adrenaline? If not, why not?
It is a really exciting time to be an entrepreneur right now. While most people are out there following the sensationalist headlines which paralyzes people, entrepreneurs are creating and building solutions. Headlines like - dismal job growth in May, US in default, Is this the double-dip recession? They can wear heavy on the masses and actually do a good job of driving more news consumption which turns into a re-affirming negative cycle. Say things are really bad long enough, it becomes true. The best entrepreneurs are ignoring the headlines and seeing opportunities through the fog. I’m seeing real opportunities in the living room where devices are getting better and better, technology is moving at a faster pace than ever, content business models rapidly evolving, and general consumer excitement. Entrepreneurs see those opportunities and execute. What areas are you seeing real opportunities and what are you doing about it?
I was once told that you can always sleep more once you’re dead. There’s just too much to do, finding great opportunities and doing what we do best - pulling resources together to build something really special. Umm, who needs sleep?
