Fab CEO Jason Goldberg has just published an amazing blog post. I don’t know Jason. But, I’m writing because he did something that many of us wouldn’t do: he called bullcrap on himself. I really admire him for it.
Specifically, Jason wrote this:
In 2012 and 2013 I took the betashop blog in a direction that I’m not proud of. I allowed it to veer from its original mandate around startup transparency and lessons learned to more of a promotion tool for Fab. Sure, I shared more company data and info on betashop than most startup CEO’s would imagine sharing, and I know that a lot of people appreciated the transparency. But to be perfectly honest the sharing was sometimes slanted; more and more betashop was used as a vehicle for pushing out positive data about Fab. That’s not full transparency.
Jason also wrote about other amazing things, including lessons learned as an entrepreneur. It’s a long post, but well worth reading.
