Don’t Judge Travis or McLure…

When did the startup scene become so full of victims??

I got involved in the tech & startups because of the nature of the industry. It’s about breaking convention. It’s about going against the grain. It’s about proving everyone wrong. It’s about being politically incorrect. It’s about being crazy, getting out there, being the minority, being told you can’t do it, but still doing it anyway. It’s about building your tribe of misfits & turning what was once obscure into something popular.

1. Victims

All I see in the comments & the news is “victims of this”, “victims of that”.

you need to find the ADVANTAGE in what you have

Jesus was the minority when he preached his sermons. So was the Buddha, or Mohammed for that matter.

  • Oprah.
  • Elon Musk
  • Branson
  • Coco Chanel
  • Elton John
  • Michael Jackson
  • Martin Luther King
He got ridiculed, but he came back better than ever. Respect.

2. Contrast

On a more important note, how about some contrast. THIS is the ultimate medicine.

5,500 children die EVERY FUCKING DAY in Africa

And here you are crying “rape” about some women who supposedly got “taken advantage of” in one of the most privileged countries in the world, whilst among some of the smartest, most successful & influential people in the world??? Are you fucking kidding me??

This is a REAL problem.

3. Nobody is Innocent — We’re all guilty

It takes Two to Tango.

Which side will you stand on?
