I would categorize most New Year’s resolutions as run of the mill: “Eat healthier!”; “Learn a new language!”; “Do more yoga!” And nothing is technically wrong with them. But are they what you daydream about while sitting in your cube/office? If you were asked, “What have you always wanted to start? What have you always wanted to create?” would these be your answers? A year from now, will you truly regret not having practiced more yoga? We didn’t think so. So, today we’re encouraging you to resolve to have #NoRegrets2013 by helping you get started on what you really want to do.
The concept is simple – we know that getting started is one of the hardest steps for any entrepreneur (Jack Dorsey agrees). The #NoRegrets2013 initiative aims to make it a little bit easier for current and aspiring entrepreneurs who are ready to start moving on that idea that’s been gnawing at them for years (or weeks). How? We’re asking, “What have you always wanted to start?” Enter in the idea to declare getting started on it as one of your 2013 New Year’s Resolutions. We’ll help with the next steps – namely, getting started with the right people, which it’s no secret we believe is the smartest first step and have built an amazing network around. But it’s more than that. It’s about sharing what you’re thinking about with friends and family, letting them know that you’re serious about doing something different. It’s about getting feedback. It’s about thinking bigger for 2013.
Your idea doesn’t have to be the next Facebook – it doesn’t even need to be technology-related – just the next side-project or company that you’ve been telling your friends about (or keeping to yourself) forever. Once you submit, you can view the wide-range of submissions in our #NoRegrets2013 gallery.
We started FounderDating not just to put people together, but to help people do the things they really want to do in life – the things they are passionate about, the things they’ve always wanted to start.
