I was in the right place at the right time.
It was November 2002, and I received an email from a friend that changed my life in ways I could never have imagined.
Without receiving, reading, and taking action on that email, I would never have started blogging or built the business I have built.
I often reflect on this serendipitous start to the current chapter of my life – what would have happened if I’d not opened that email?
I feel lucky that I did… but was it just ‘luck’?
Earlier this year I was asked to travel to Boston to deliver a 12-minute ‘Bold Talk’ at Hubspot’s Inbound conference.
I loved the challenge of doing a shorter form presentation – particularly because I was invited to speak on something other than my normal topic (that of blogging).
I decided that the focus of my talk would be ‘luck’ in entrepreneurship. It definitely seems to play a part for many successful entrepreneurs but what is behind that luck?
In this short talk, I identify 7 habits of lucky entrepreneurs and challenge us all to make time to fit them into the way we live our lives.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this talk. Please let me know what habits you’d add to my 7 (I had another three that I would have included if I had had more time).
I’d also appreciate if you would consider sharing this presentation if you find it helpful!
