Sometimes in life you just plain eat it. You fall flat on your face. Physical and emotional cuts, bruises and scars remind you of your epic failures for days, months and years afterwards. But they are all worth it. They teach you lessons. You learn, you move on and you try not to do it again.
We’ve all had our fair share of mistakes, even our founder and CEO, Ted Murphy. He will be talking about his disasters at this year’s South by Southwest® Conference.
Ted’s philosophy: Go big, fail quickly and move on.
Attendees will get a head start on the lessons Ted learned the hard way, such as:
- Sometimes it’s a crapshoot, so go for it.
- Tips: Know when to dig in your heel… and when to let go.
- What makes a great business partner and who’s just a pain in the ass.
- The moneymen: When to self-fund and how to deal with crazy investors.
