Finding a Balance Between Talent and Passion

Posted by Amity Sims 1 day ago

Inside FI gives you exclusive access inside the training sessions of the Founder Institute. To get updates when we release new videos, follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our weekly newsletter here.

In this talk from the Denver Founder Institute, Jim Franklin helps founders better define their business goals and values. Jim says the key to starting a successful company is honing in on your talents and passions; however, eager founders use caution- be sure there is economic value before proceeding.

Jim Franklin is the CEO of SendGrid - the leader in email deliverability. Jim is also a Director for the Denver Founder Institute, which is accepting applications now. To get expert training and feedback to launch a company in 2014, apply today.

To further explain the three tenants of a great business idea, Jim uses the example of the game of golf; he says a founder may be passionate about golf, but if he is not one of the best in the world there is little chance for economic gain. Finding a balance between passion and skills is crucial.

Jim Franklin will speak at a free event on October 14, 2014. Click here for more information.
