“Starting a company is full of surprises. Twists and turns are not only inevitable, but good.”
I went to a kid friendly party and they were serving the huge Costco bags [of Bare Snacks]. The host told me they were the best snack she had ever served her kids... and she confided that she ate them more often than the kids... Later that week Posh Spice Instagrammed that Bare Snacks were her go-to snack for travel. I sort of figured that we were on to something that week.
I like to jump in head first. Of course, I have had experiences where there was no water in the pool... But that is all part of it.
One of the most important things I've learned is that it often takes years to know whether something is good news or bad news. Sometimes you never know. This has helped me in business and in life. Of course, I have celebrated the wins and bemoaned the losses. But sometimes those wins turned out to be not as special as I thought, and the losses similarly not as bad.
Fear of failure.
