The Highs and Lows of Entrepreneurship, Losing It All, Starting Over and Surviving Colon Cancer with Richard Lau (#068)
Being an entrepreneurship may sound attractive, but it isn't easy.
Many people go in it with dreams of great success and freedom, but it doesn't always work out as they hoped.
There is no straight line to success. And as Richard Lau says in this episode, it's not a matter of if, but when, life will punch you in the face. What makes the difference is how you respond to those punches when they come.
Being a serial entrepreneur, Richard has had to take his fair share of punches. Some people may have given up, but Richard saw each know down as an opportunity start over using the lessons he's learnt from the challenges he faced.
Now the founder of logo.com, 20 years ago at just 30 years old, Richard had the month from hell. As a result of a hack on his business which wiped his customer records, and a dramatic move by a competitor, Richard was put back to square one financially and if that wasn't bad enough, a diagnosis of colon cancer that doctors believed was terminal followed it up.
Thankfully, Richard survived to tell the story, and you can listen to it here.
