Its not a race!
Sydney has been buzzing with the sale of Spreets to Yahoo7 last week, and good on the founders who managed to stick it and flick it in under a year.
The media has (yet again) got on their old bandwagon with the ‘overnight success story’ and it annoys me that people often get sucked into this bad measurement of success as well.
Entrepreneurship is not a race, its about completion. Its not a 100 metre sprint, but a 100k run. Sure some get to the end of the game much faster than others, but just to get to the end is the real achievement.
Its not just about the money, its also about the creation, innovation, lifestyle and passion that comes with it.
Well done to the Spreets founders, you guys have really done the Sydney tech-startup scene proud and here is to doing it all again soon :)
