Getting Something Started

Marshall Brain

In Marshall’s experience, the biggest problem most new entrepreneurs face is how to get started – how to “become” an entrepreneur”. This talk is part motivational, part technique, part psychology. It is great for students or public gatherings and will make people think differently about their opportunities. It also works well internally with teams.
