Section 1: Getting Started: You need to be Brave

I've been where you are. I know that starting a business can be one of the most exciting things you can do. It can reward you with a huge amount of satisfaction, however it can also lead to a great deal of stress. What I ask you to be, is Brave.


Brave starts with a mindset, and the mindset is not to worry about the end result.


This may sound like a very different approach from what you've followed before, but trust me, it works.


A colleague of mine, a young man just twenty years of age, has successfully used this approach to meet with the managing directors and chief executives of some of the biggest companies in the world.


We all have a voice inside of us. This little voice that tells us that it won't work.


Emotion is part of work, because work is part of people.


You are not alone. We are all here to help you.


Thank you and well done for completing my very first course. More courses will be uploaded in the coming months. Please find some additional video content in the lectures below. Until the next time we meet, remember, you can make this work. You just need to be BRAVE!


Part 1 of my talk at TechOut LA. TechOut LA is an LA Innovation Week which brings together tech founders, VC funders, entrepreneurs, educators and students. Everybody is there to rally behind one shared goal: to continue growing our entrepreneur movement through education and collaboration.


Part 2 of my talk at TechOut LA.


I had the pleasure of delivering a TEDx talk at Edinburgh Napier University in 2014. Here I discuss being brave, and give tips on how to fuel the entrepreneur in you and overcome failure.
