    a poser of sorts

    What is the one “universal truth” within the advertising industry that resonates with you the most? Positively or negatively, doesn’t matter.

    You can never be right.

“We are such inward secret creatures, that inwardness is the most amazing thing about us, even more amazing than our reason. But we cannot just walk into the cavern and look around. Most of what we think we know about our minds is pseudo-knowledge. We are all such shocking poseurs, so good at inflating the importance of what we think we value.—Iris Murdoch, The Sea, the Sea

Don’t stay in denial, or blame others—learn from the tough times these entrepreneurs experienced when their startups fell flat.
Choosing to leave behind the regular paycheck and benefits to build a venture from the ground up is a huge risk.
It’s risky because it’s hard work, there are no guarantees, and 95% of startups fail, based on research by Shikhar Ghosh, a senior lecturer at Harvard Business School.
With the odds against you, entrepreneurs feel like they’re literally pushing against the tides every day so when companies fail, the price, which can include financial ruin, utter embarrassment, and even mental collapse, is a hefty one for the founders.
We spoke to four entrepreneurs to explore what they learned from this mourning and accepting period, how they picked themselves up and moved on to become the success stories they are today:

Quotacle lets users search through over 250,000 lines of dialogue from 143 movies.
Everybody knows what the first and second rules of Fight Club are. Ditto the identity of Luke’s father. Sometimes, however, a bit of dialogue drops from someone’s lips and just hangs there in your ear canal, undiagnosed. Neither the title of the film nor the context in which this line was uttered break through the clatter of your overwhelmed modern-day brain. Googling might’ve helped, but it also might not have. Instead, this is a job for the movie quote search engine—a thing that now exists.

YUS!

Suggesting you rise before the sun is even up may seem a little mean. So we’ll wake our groggy selves up, too, for some extra motivation.
