What happens when you realise your path is entrepreneurship rather than employment? Lindsay takes up the challenge and shares an account of her journey as it unfolds…
I’m sitting at gate 38 at Bangalore airport, waiting for my flight home and it’s 00.32 local time. I can feel myself getting a tad irritable. It started with the slow-moving queues at the check-in desk. But I suspect it’s more because I had 2 glasses of prosecco 4 hours ago, I didn’t sleep well last night, and had to get up at the equivalent of 3.00am this morning.
I’m also noticing a stronger feeling that is overtaking this mild irritation. It’s a quiet but deep kind of excitement. In just 1.5 days at the Agile India conference in Bangalore, I made some great connections: people who might be interested in adding Mirror Mirror to their training portfolio, people who might be interested in buying Mirror Mirror for their teams, people who might be interested in running an interview about Mirror Mirror, and a whole bunch of really friendly, open, non-judgemental new contacts.
My 90-minute talk went well this morning. Even though it’s difficult to read the local audience, there was a lot participation in in the interactive sections, there were good questions afterwards and I ended up on the Best Rated Speakers list (at least for now).
