You’ve been told a million times to “work smart, not hard”, but in the startup world that’s never the case: you’ve got to out-hustle the competition, reinvent yourself daily, and put your entire soul into your mission. Whether you’re pitching to VCs or coding all night, your ability to deliver, inspire, and energize will be the cornerstones of your success. It’s not just taking a job, it’s exploring an idea -- and it’s not about work/life balance, it’s about work/life integration.
This session delivers 21 proven ideas to help your mind, body, and soul thrive at your startup. From “Check Entitlement at the Door” and “Be Your Own Worst Critic” to “Work Out or Tap Out” and “Classy Never Goes Out of Style”, these lessons from entrepreneurs Chad Norman and Christina Lock, who helped build 2013’s fastest-growing software company SPARC, provide a framework for living the startup life - from garage to corporate headquarters. Their experiences, along with those of successful industry leaders, will help you create the company of your dreams, and the lifestyle to survive it. Think, feel, and love your startup...and your head, heart, soul, (and profits) will follow!
