"Ambition is the last refuge of failure": how Scoop.it was born

"Ambition is the last refuge of failure": how Scoop.it was born | Ideas for entrepreneurs | Scoop.it
Today, we launch Scoop.it publicly, which means our private beta was a success with strong traffic and continuous growth.
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

This is the post I wrote when we launched Scoop.it back in November of 2011. And how we had failed before that. And failed to realize quickly enough we were failing. It's hard to capitalize on on the past in enterpreneurship: sure, you learn; but there's always more to learn and a lot of unknowns. I felt I had to re-invent myself as an entrepreneur. That I had to relearn most of it.


As we had finally seen some success through the private beta of Scoop.it and were about to launch, I decided this was a good opportunity to share that story.

Choose Yourself! Talk by James Altucher

"Choose Yourself!" Was published: June 3rd 2013

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

This is a great emotional description of many things about entrepreneurship.


I like in particular how phases you go through as an entrepreneur constantly change like on a roller-coaster. Not everyone's the same but all entrepreneurs I've known whent through these ups and downs (although admitedly not the getting-broke-from-being-millionaire phase). But the point James Altucher is making resonnates : it's about what happens now.

Het gaat niet om worden, het gaat niet om succes. Het gaat om kiezen te zijn wie je bent. Elk moment weer.
