I just had a great Google Hangout with Will Weinraub. He’s an entrepreneur in Miami and we chatted about his background and his company.
Will said a lot of things that made me really think, and one line in particular was awesome: “Once I had a certain amount of money in the bank, I vowed to start my company–and, I did.” In other words, Will had a “launching-point number” in his head (out of respect for him, I’m not printing the actual number he told me).
You may have heard people talk about “the number” at which point they’ll retire. But, I’ve never heard someone do the opposite: think about the level of personal savings they’d need before they launched.
Makes me want to write this: what’s your launching-point number? If you’ve ever thought about starting a company, what’s holding you back–and, what can you do in 2014 to take that next step towards entrepreneurship?
Will, it was great to chat with you. You’re doing the right thing and thanks for reaching out to connect!
