this past weekend i attended one of my favorite startup events - Techstars Patriot Boot Camp, a three-day workshop that takes the best-practices of Techstars and teaches veterans about entrepreneurship. as a veteran myself, i'm passionate about giving back to the veteran community.
the experience was like a home-coming for me. it was a tremendous honor to deliver a speech and motivate a great group of men and women.
one key thing i revisited during my speech was my own entrepreneurial path. and i realized and remembered that when the times were dark and tough, i dug deeper inside and became even more determined. hence the hashtag - #notbuilttoquit
so to all my veterans - like Admiral McRaven says - don't ever ring that bell. Best of luck, and let me know how i can help.
