7 Harmful Myths of Entrepreneurship

12,337 views

Published on

Summary of a presentation I gave to lunch in Connecticut (Trinity College and UConn Business School) to talk about the current state of entrepreneurship

  • I wanted to share my experience as I think it would be a good one for potential clients of yours to hear about. When I started I know we had a lot of back and forth and I'm really pleased about this and that you made me that deal. £2 bets for 4 weeks with you covering my losses. Looking back now I can't believe I ever doubted you but if I was back in that frame of mind now I'd probably be thinking the same things, I'm just glad you talked me into doing it. £2 bets lead to £5, £10, £20 and so on and now I'm joining you hitting £700 a month with £100 stakes. Me, putting a £100 bet on a horse and not worry too much about the outcome?! Never thought id ever reach that level to be honest.You did this Ben and I cannot thank you enough. ▲▲▲ http://t.cn/A6vAxKsh
