Entrepreneurs do not walk in straight lines. For the most part, things do not go as planned. Obstacles and roadblocks are so common for startups, they should have their own slide in any pitch deck or business plan.
Blair and I discussed these obstacles and roadblocks and how to deal with them. We noted that no individual moment is fatal and that being focused on doing the right thing pushes stuff to work out in the end.
Giving up is a sure path to failure. While being persistent and dealing directly with fear will not guarantee success, they sure do help!
We finished with a conversation about chat apps and how Line and its stickers makes chatting so much fun and so engaging.
