Let’s face it…entrepreneurship is scary! There are many reasons why the thought of starting a business instills fear. It involves risk (and somewhere down the line…reward), an ability to think outside the box while also getting tasks accomplished daily, extra time, financial give and take and of course, the high likelihood that you will fail (I believe the stat still claims that 9/10 will succumb to this fate).
The problem is that each of these things is true, but the decision to start your own company or become an entrepreneur doesn’t have to be spur of the moment, and there are ways to eliminate a lot of the risk associated – including a strong community and early stage exploration. In celebration of our growing community and the launch of our new development programs, we have decided to help 5 lucky people take that first step.
For the entire month of July, we’ll be running our #DontFeartheFrontier campaign! Our goal is to help individuals who are thinking about an idea (or multiple) finally take that first step toward making their dream a reality. Our new Venture Start Online Program allows individuals to take our interactive course at their own pace and whenever is convenient.
Who? Anyone who needs a little push in order to face their fears. Whether starting a business is one of them doesn’t matter – get involved and help inspire others to venture out into the scary and unknown! If you win you can always gift the course to a friend or loved one.
What? Each week in July, we’ll choose one winner for a free seat in our Venture Start Online Program. Submissions must:
- Include either a photo or video of you doing something that scares you – show us how you can overcome your fears
- Post on either Twitter, Facebook or Instagram (posting in multiple locations will not increase your chances of winning)
- Tag @TechRanch® on Twitter/Instagram and Tech Ranch® Austin on Facebook – include #DontFeartheFrontier
- Be tasteful, appropriate and inspirational
- Added bonus for including why you or someone for whom you are participating deserves a FREE Venture Start seat
Where? Everywhere! Since our program is online, anyone across the globe can participate.
When? Start posting now! One winner will be announced via social media on each of the following days: July 1, July 8, July 15, July 22 and July 29th.
Why? Because you want to have fun, inspire, motivation, create and be part of something great
