Just read a post by Fred Wilson on how he got started in the venture capital business. The title of the post is “I Got Lucky”. I think we all eventually get “lucky” (if we want to call it that), but the key to getting lucky is continued perseverance to finding (or stumbling upon) that luck.
That’d be a fun blog to write, because everyone has a “i got lucky” story — you’d have an endless stream of stories from people in all businesses. Or you could write a book with mini essays (a la Founders At Work) — and if it were me, I’d call the book “I Found Lucky“. [yes, that sounds like a children’s book about finding a dog, but I think it’s a good one :)]
