Feedback is my third favorite four-letter word. By that, I mean the word gift. If you have been to one of my recent workshops, you would have heard me outline the expectation that feedback is a gift. Now, I must admit I absolutely stole this expectation (with permission) from the design thinking geniuses at DesignThinking.bg. It has become a staple guiding principle for my workshops and my life in general.
It’s easy to overlook or just not know about our entrepreneurial ecosystem. Maybe it’s because we’re spread out across great distances, or maybe it’s because the louder narrative about the economy lately has been a pessimistic one. And yet, there exists a vibrant community of people committed to making a difference for our state, whether through launching a company or providing resources to entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs.
