step right up for another storytelling adventure from visa and jon, of the struggles of Small Business Hero(es)

there are over 80 slides in this, I'm going to leave out about half of them (the statistics and stuff... if you want you can look them up, I'll link to it at the end)
it's extra poignant for me to re-read this now that I'm a feral free agent myself

define success for yourself, don't let other people define it for u
our hero is inspired

(keep it simple!)
our hero says byeeee 👋🏾 to paycheck life

i know now personally how exhilarating and scary this is
time to take a slingshot ride into the unknown!!
you are not alone
the best part of business is great partners

practically every entrepreneur I've talked to IRL has a certain reverence for intense relationships – the kind you can only have with co-founders and small founding teams, not with colleagues at megacorps
gettin' to work!!
learning to work with one another :'-)
there will be fights
help each other out
"and then things got worse"
you need consensus on your vision
allow for graceful failure
because there will be failure
remember, business is about serving customers
focus on what you're best at
uh oh
you gotta act
get started
uh oh
do your best!!
do what it takes!!
oh no
we can fix it!!
maybe a change of focus...?
goodbyes are hard
