Startup Life: Winning Endgame Begins with Inner Game


Published on

Presented at Echelon Ignite Thailand. 'Personal growth', philosophy, etc is hardly a hot topic in startup / tech conferences, but I wanted to talk about it. I wanted to talk about the 'source' of strategies, tactics, methods etc - which is our inner beliefs, our inner operating system if you will. It's the first time I presented this material in this way, and it's still very raw, but I'll be building on this topic in time to come.
