AdTech Meet-up London #mobile #startups

Most people probably hide embarrassing interviews – but I’ll post mine publicly and learn from it instead.

In the words of my boss – ‘this is classic VIOLETA with over-enthusaism’. **Also – wanted to clarify that I had not drank the ‘free wine’ discussed in the video before filming this. It really was just me being too nervous and excited in from of a camera. 

Look out for the actual talk on my blog soon!

Also – definitely hating the whole paper business card situation. It’s so inefficient and they end up sitting on my desk for weeks until I finally throw them away. I’ve met multiple start-ups trying to solve this problem (with mobile phones – obviously), so hopefully one of them reaches the early majority soon.  #nomorepaper

The man in the arena… According to Teddy Roosevelt.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
