Calling All Student Entrepreneurs: Tell Us About Your Startup

"Most people are put off by success because they don’t think they can make it."

Jan 30, 2013

I want to show people that no matter where they’re from or what age they are, they can succeed in what they want to do. Most people are put off by success because they don’t think they can make it. We all make excuses because we’re scared of what’s on the other side, but it’s important to take risks—even if we fail—because that is how we learn.

It’s easy to say, “Well, I’m from a small town,” or, “I don’t have the money to do that.” I was once in that situation. Even though I feel like I still have quite a long way to go, I hope I can inspire people with my journey so far! ~Lara Jade

    1. Kind of. However, to me success is an abstract idea and not that much important either; rather sometimes it seems that the idea of success spoils the art! The important thing is: are you alive? The most vital sign of a living human being, who understands, at least, a bit of what he is for, is that he will keep moving/contributing & the question of return is irrelevant as long as one is capable to survive!
