Spent the morning dealing with the "Arctic Blast" on the air... and then just did a short interview with Ken Rutkowski on Business Rockstars national radio show. Ken asked about what's going in Hammond, Ind., regarding venture capital and of course my background as a trader. He didn't asked about the many business failures that I've endured - 85,000 circulation newspaper, computer trading, radio as video, the LOVE unit, etc. Not that I wouldn't talk about them. I enjoy talking about them. Hold your failures up as trophies. More failures, if you play it right, means more successes.
So what now. Ken asked an interesting question - what's more stressful, trading or entrepreneurship? You tell me. At least in the pits I'd know it was there and I could return to the market any time, any day. Now that I'm done with the Rutkowski interview, where from here?
That's the question that constantly pounds at you. What do I create next? More radio, podcasts, videos, blogs, stories, poems, a museum, marketing material, etc. I work on all of these things in a week and a lot of times it feels as if things don't move forward. That's the difference between trading and entrepreneurship - structure.
Enough. It's freaking 3 degrees out and dangerous wind chills. Tonight it's set to be -10 with wind chills approaching 40 below. Schools will probably be closed again tomorrow. But radio won't. Radio's always open, just like White Castles.
