Athletes and Entrepreneurs, Confidence is Everything

Episode 3.3 of THE SHOW with Thad Lewis

4.3.17





The Teaching Startup crew definitely got rolling with this episode and it produced some of our most entertaining and interesting content. Discussing confidence and strategy, we get into the similarities between high-level athlete performance and high-level founder performance. The common theme is confidence.

You can have all the talent in the world and still fail. Every athlete knows this. What you put around you is important, but feeling like you can win, against all odds, that's critical. There will be times in startup when you're tested, when you have to survive, and being able to make the right decisions is rooted in your strength of character.

We have a lot of fun in this episode too. I think this is the point where we got relaxed and we figured out how to help Thad and he figured out how to help us.
