There are two great lies told to entrepreneurs. These lies are not intended to be hurtful or limiting but they are. These lies are not intended to produce fear or doubt but they do. These lies are based upon common understanding, tribal knowledge. They are NOT based in fact or reality.
They are "The World is Flat" statements of the current age. Widely accepted but just not true!
Lie #1 "It takes money to make money" - I will explain why I feel this is not true in a later posting
Lie #2 "Build it and they will come" - I will explain why I feel this is not true in a later posting
For now, let's say this.
If you believe these statements are true then the Innovation President Obama calls for and we so greatly need cannot happen!
If you believe these lies then you are destine to work for someone who does not believe these to be true. If too many of us believe these statements then we as a people will serve someone else. When we limit our options or chase poorly guided pursuits we give away or freedom one decision at a time.
I'm not ready to give up on freedom. I refuse to believe the lies!
