After I publicly announced through this blog that I was starting on this journey, and especially after the post where I wrote about attending startups. Something interesting happened. I started to receive several offers of attendance in startups.
So good news for the people out there who want to attend a startup- the opportunities are endless!
BYE BYE MILLION CO-FOUNDER PUBLICITY
A really hard decision. I was introduced to these guys that are working on a project I believe has the opportunity to get to the level of snapchat and Instagram.YEAH pretty insane & good. During a consideration to attend the team- I said no. They showed me during our last meeting a mockup of the app and I must say that I feel that I currently have said goodbye to be a part of a future million-worth company. INSANE
Instead of bringing it forward and convince them about bringing me on the team, I decided to rather focus on the projects I’m currently involved in. Heartbreaking– I like those guys and their project. Its not like I flipped the finger to them. I offered them my support and if they need some help in the future I will see what I can to. But right know its not the right time for me personal to get attached to a project like that. Don’t get me wrong its nothing wrong with the people or the concept- but I need to stay focused on my values and targets for now and the future.
REACH OUTS During the process so far I have been engaged in some different opportunities and considered them.
It has also given me a clarity on what I want to- and what I would not like to focus on right now. It's probably not the last time I will have to pass an opportunity, but I believe that when you miss one- new ones will occur.
