Taking Risks and Winning Big: A Career Journey
When I joined Uber it was seen as a risky move to leave a “stable” government job for something that had never been done before.
The bet paid off
When I joined Lime to launch the shared electric scooters across North America it was seen as a risky move to leave a “stable” tech job for something that had never been done before.
That bet also paid off
When I joined Sealed as their Launch Expert and dialed down some of my own consulting and advising it was seen by some in my network as a risky move.
That bet also paid off big time
Now I’ve gone all in on my consulting and advising services during a time of economic and social uncertainty. Here’s the thing, there’s going to be people who tell you to doubt yourself, but their doubt has nothing to do with you - instead it has to do with their inability to imagine a reality where people who dream big can actually win.
Moral of the story. If you’re someone who sees opportunity, don’t let risk-averse people’s opinions stop you from making a big bet 🚀
