Joel Burslem just jumped to the top of my list of favorite people in the world….
“But I’ve also seen a lot of noble ventures. Ideas that have real merit that just need a little coaxing into flower. Some of the best have gone on to great acclaim. Others have earned their just reward.
I am inspired by these folks for a couple of reasons.
First, they actually made something. I know how profoundly difficult this can be. I’ve been there. Grinding and grinding for hours obsessing over pixels, debating features, fixing bugs, stressing about database loads, worrying about business models or where the next – or even the first – dollar will come from. The countless hours and toll that this sort of entrepreneurship takes. It’s not for everyone.
It’s this determination that I find energizing.”
Fittingly I read this in an airport, midway of a trip that has taken me on 6 airplanes in 4 days. #hustle
