Last Thursday, Shwan Lamei and I were strolling through the charmed side streets of Brookline, a close-in Boston suburb. Shwan, former “high-potential” corporate executive, dropped out of corporate life 2 years ago. Founded a start-up in the energy-conservation arena with a business partner, Daria. Has been riding the ups and downs of start-up life.
Shwan and Daria just secured a major round of business funding. Shwan and his wife Elizabeth purchased a gorgeous new house in Brookline. Life is good.
It’s all about getting out of our own way, Shwan reflects.
I have always loved this saying.
