LETTER FROM THE HOST
When an entrepreneur is brave enough to open up and share what they struggle with, it creates a pocket of relief for others listening. Sometimes there’s a bit of advice that’s helpful that comes across. But more often it’s the normalization of the existential struggle of trying to do the impossible that’s so powerful for folks.
It’s yet another reinforcement of the notion of not being alone. That realization alone is often enough for people to first, break down and connect with their fear and sadness, and then reach in and find source of their deeper strength and wisdom.
It works because the community tells their stories and in the sharing, both the listener and the speaker are helped.
Jerry Colonna, CEO of Reboot
