On Tuesday of this week I was invited to meet with a substantially large company. We were there to discuss our services and whether there was room for a joint partnership. I sat at the conference table in front of a two sr. executives and a product-line manager. The combined age of the 3 people I met with was around 6 times my own age. For every one of these meetings that I had attended, they had been to hundreds. They knew this and they tried to make the most of their “advantage”.
Experience is critical in business, and there are no books to read, no lectures to attend, and no shortcuts to take. It comes slowly, painfully and naturally.
We young entrepreneurs might not have the same experience as those who have been at it for 30 years, but our youth is a strenght as much as a weakness. We are able to bring energy and passion business and as long as we surround ourselves with experienced advisors, I like our chances.
