“I’ve started several businesses. Maybe 17 have failed out of 20. I fail quickly. I fail frequently. Entrepreneurship is a sentence of failures punctuated by brief success.”
The words of a successful/unsuccessful entrepreneur.
It makes me think of joke writing. For “business”, substitute “joke”.
A good stand-up show is all your successes in one place.
With stand-up and entrepreneurship, the trick is to find ways to fail that mean you can keep playing the game.
