A friend of mine starting working in a start-up ... in
And I think it’s truly great:
- start-ups are back: the pioneering feeling is back, similar to the crazy start of the internet (but with some prudence)
- it’s not only in the internet, but it goes somewhat broader
- not too much happening in
Thoughts of a tuesdayevening man: how come
I doubt about the attitude of us 30 years olds: many young people that came back from the internet startup rage all are back in, they’ve taken up a ‘family’-job, and no-one regrets their experience. However, many 30+ are spoiled: at the end of their 20’s, they got a cool car, good salary and a job they like pretty much. So they keep their job, and become risk averse. And all who preserve the past may loose the future. So dare to re-invent yourself. I need to re-invent myself. We all need to re-invent ourselves. By staying ourselves.
So to all that doubt: become and entrapreneur, become an intrapreneur, dare. Don’t live safe as of your 31st, you’re the CEO of your own life. This is the 2nd time innovation will disrupt in 10 years. It may not come again.
