Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Don't Expect, Connect!

« Open to Interpretation | Main | Does Your Story Convey a Point of View? »


I'm not so sure we have. Still seeing a lot of expectation from Wall st. types and some VCs that money needs to come fast, and get into their own pockets, consequences for others who are impacted be damned...

I wonder about more and more people starting their own business... is it sustainable to have lots of independent consultants and very small businesses at first? Do people think about scale when they start? You gave a whole new train of thoughts here.

Congratulations on making the decision. Often that is a stumbling block.

It also depends on your definition of success. My other observation, is that things tips when you are in flow, and when you are so engrossed in doing something you truly believe in. It can be very scary.
