You have a very impressive resume Mr Thomson but I didn’t see any failures in your resume and because of this we won’t be able to hire you at Google. Why is that? Because if you haven’t fail enough you are not worth hiring. An extract from the book The Google Guys. Its not me, its not your regular day to day HR manager, its Chief Operating Officer of a billion dollar company we are talking about. The people who ask me Why fail more to be a better Entrepreneur? Well this is my answer to them. When you start as an Entrepreneur. You start with audacious dreams and irresistible passion to achieve something, but sometimes in the middle of all that, you fail, and you fail hard. And at times it feels like quitting everything and go for a job. But then if you are passionate enough about your dream, you read what others did when they were faced with failure. Guess what, they lean into it meaning they embraced failure no matter how bad it was. And after couple of dozen failures you see them in Times magazine or consider them an overnight success.

I was invited in for a panel discussion in which someone asked, how many hours do you work for your startup each day? I said 25 hours. He said how can it be. I was like because being an Entrepreneur is a full time job. This is one of myths no one told me about when I was starting early as an Entrepreneur. With 9-5 you work just for 12 hours but with Entrepreneurship you work just few hours. Which is insane concept. When you start as an Entrepreneur you start with a passion, you start with a dream; to serve, to make a difference, and to achieve peace in your life. In this blog I would like to list some of the things which I wished someone told me when I was starting out as an Entrepreneur.
