Post Status Excerpt (No. 25) — Doing “The Right Thing” and Mailchimp Acquisition Thoughts
“When it comes to the entrepreneurial journey – the highest highs and the lowest lows are always people.”
In this episode of Post Status Excerpt, David and Cory first discuss how hard it is to do “the right thing” and potentially dealing with tough and negative feedback as a result. How does an entrepreneur prepare for “roller coaster” times — especially if the ride is heading down? What should you keep in mind? Cory shares an iThemes experience in response.
Also covered in this episode: Cory and David talk about the $12 billion acquisition of MailChimp by Intuit, and how that could potentially reshape the business landscape for WordPress users and entrepreneurs.
Note: David misspoke and said “Stripe” instead of “Square.” Forgive him.
