Success Breeds Success
Our guest walked in saying he had so many failures, he kept a notepad to remember them. Even showed us the pad. Our mistake was we didn’t look closely. We figured we’d have eight or nine episodes worth without getting to the fold. (Newspaper term. Look it up).
We should have known something was up when he parried our first attempts to drive him off-point with humor. Scowled at us, he did. (Yoda-speak. Look it up). More worried were we (yep, Yoda, again) when he said he had already listened to some of our episodes. In retrospect, we had to wonder whether that was casual listening — or something more akin to Belichick and Brady watching Rams videos in the run-up to the Super Bowl.
Gave up, we did (Yep, you know the drill). This was clearly going to be Christopher Mirabile’s podcast. Managing director of Launchpad Venture Group, chair emeritus of the Angel Capital Association. You got it.
It worked out for us, though. In the end, we were able to wrangle a failure story from Christopher. (Spoiler alert: it was only a 2x return).
Join the team from Failure - the Podcast and Christopher Mirabile in a wandering story of consultancy, the auto business, entrepreneurship, investment, and you name it. It’s a nail biter.
