How come successful entrepreneurs fail?

Because you can’t trust luck. But you can trust customers’ behavior, when tracked correctly. I was lucky to interview Marc Hemeon on my podcast. After scheduling the interview, Marc sent me a message making sure I know he quit Tech and is no longer part of the entrepreneurial world. Marc’s fantastic story is relevant for many entrepreneurs. “Today, I’m a ‘recovering entrepreneur’.” Marc told me. Last year, I closed a startup that I had founded in California; I sold my house and took a break from 20 years of tech. Right now I’m painting and doing art in the North Shore of Oahu.” Marc didn’t tell me right away that just before this last startup, he co-founded two very successful startups; Fflick, which was acquired by Google and YouTube a month after the launch while they surprisingly experienced a hype they couldn’t even dream of. The second was a startup he launched with his friend, it was an app for luxury watches and within less than two years they merged with the global leading company in the world of luxury watches.

But one day, I had an odd idea of inventing a new model of marketing for entrepreneurs and startups and went to establish my business. On my podcast (the one I never planned on starting), I interview successful entrepreneurs; most of who got up one morning and wrote a blog, or created a podcast, or launched a new direct PR model for entrepreneurs, and grew a company of 18 employees around it within a few years.
