Ran into Larry Chiang on a bus at SXSW. On that bus, I learned some neat “hacks” – some street smart ways to doing typical things. Listening to that, I thought it would be great if he came and shared some of his lessons with us at MIT Sloan.Â After one email, he agreed and the talk turned out to into a full classroom.
For me, it confirmed the power of asking. Sometimes all it takes is a little guts to ask someone to help you out, do an event, or give you a few million dollars (ahem…VCs *cough*)…and, especially learning from Larry’s experience, it works!
