An email this morning from my friend Matias – made me feel stupid.
During 2009 – I have felt some self petty and I have been thinking that life was hard – but imagine if I was into real old school business – like farming (where we all came from – and yes my grandfather has a medium sized farm until early 1970’ies). But fuck me – and all the spoiled kids in the tech world. Its hard but NOT THIS HARD – as in farming where:
- Product cycles are 3-4 years
- Weather can kill all
- Its hard physical work
- Capital requirements are insane
- Lots of heritage
- Lots of environmental trouble
I feel humble that I can work in a sector where the screen always lets me work when and where I want to – mostly with whom I want to. And the fact that 99% of all offices are nice and warm. Well then there is the hardcore sales (the big secret of tech success) – where one have to aggressively show the vision and product (even very early stage) to endless amounts of clients and investors – but but but – the always offer you coffee and they are seldom rude.
Dear tech entrepreneur og colleagues out the – let be humble and proud and happy to be here in evolution.
Happpy Neew Year.
This morning SF time I spoke in Danish Fåborg via Video – as you see I was a little rusty ;) – and with Chinese “morning eyes” ;)
It was a bit strange to speak with out feeling the audience – but I will ask the Ruparena to comment on it. I got all on about not leting ayone hold you down – and mostly not yourself and your fear of others judgement. (But I have to admit that I was close to cancel the sepaking when I was i my bed here in SF – and got a bit nervous about what all these 19y olds would thin about me – and their teachers and their parrents… Im fucked up :).
I have had MANY people around me – considering that I think of my operation more or less as a one-man-army with lots of allied in my 85+ companies, project and “clubs”… But I must say that of all people Rasmus is impressing me to the max. I have also become more selfconfident on what I expect from “people working for me” – but Rasmus is just KILLER/STELLAR/AMAZING. Maybe I like him so much because he is like me – a simple genuine salesmann ;) – but I hope he can turn some big deals around and get better at numbers then I will ever be.
And ys – I FEEL DARN LUCKY.
