Seven Ways to Fail Magnificently

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When Ted Murphy introduced paid blogging in 2006, it was so contentious it garnered headlines like "PayPerPost.com offers to buy your soul.” At one industry event, Ted was even called the ‘evilest man' in the room by the moderator.
That experience, dozens of failed ideas, and one wildly successful company later, Ted learned to go big, fail quickly, and move on. He grew his current company, IZEA, with a focus on culture and creativity. In May 2011, this once-controversial company went public, working with clients around the world.
Here, Ted will share 6 ideas that fell flat (while wasting money and time) and one that paid off. Attendees will get a head start on the lessons Ted learned the hard way, such as:
* Sometimes it’s a crapshoot, so go for it.
* Tips: Know when to dig in your heel... and when to let go.
* What makes a great business partner and who’s just a pain in the ass.
* The moneymen: When to self-fund and how to deal with crazy investors.
