Liam Gooding is serial entreprenuer and founder of trak.io. In this talk he lifts the lid on his recent start-up journey, from concept to six-figure investment… warts and all. Lets just say, it's been emotional (and a little bit sweary!).

Blood, Sweat And Fears Being A Tech Entrepreneur

A Few Quick Disclaimers

This Talk 1. What is entrepreneurship 2. Why it sucks to be a tech entrepreneur 3. Why it’s great to be a tech entrepreneur

Liam Gooding A Quick Recap…

What Is (Tech) Entrepreneurship?

Jumping Off Of A Cliff, Then While Falling Attempt To Design & Build An Aeroplane, And Sell Enough Tickets On The Plane To Make The Flight Economically Viable… (Be Prepared To Hit The Ground And Burn 9 Times Out Of 10)

It’s Like Being A Magician • You create something from nothing • You try to make people to see their world through YOUR interpretation of reality • You will often sell illusions

Entrepreneurs Surround Themselves With Amazing People

Why It Sucks To Be A Tech Entrepreneur

You’ll Often Be The Odd One Out Socially You Friends Will Be Busy Climbing The Salary Ladder… £25K, £35K, £45K, £55K…. You’ll Only Be Getting ‘Sweat Equity’

It Can Be Lonely Sometimes You Have Questions Or Problems With Work That Only Another Entrepreneur Would Understand

You Can Quickly Lose It All (Brazil’s Richest Man, Eike Batista, Recently Lost $34.5Billion)

It’s Much Harder To Switch Off

Why It’s Great To Be A Tech Entrepreneur

None Of The Above (In My Experience!)

Why It’s Great To Be A Tech Entrepreneur (Remembering That You Aren’t As Smart As Mark Zuckerberg And You’re Not Trying To Become “Go To Space” Rich, You Just Want To Be “Fuck You” Rich)

Freedom To Work Anywhere, Anytime

Never Having A Boss And Having The Power To Guarantee You'll Never Have To Work With Dumbass Douchebags Again

It’s About Working Smarter, Not Harder!

You Can Be Something Different Everyday Who Doesn’t Want To Be Optimus Prime?
