As I reflect over last week’s Hubspot's Inbound15 conference, I found a common theme woven through many of the presentations and it was about fear. Brene Brown, researcher and best-selling author, discussed choosing courage over comfort. Julian Aldridge, Brand Evangelist at Charles Schwab suggests that you must leave fear behind in order to be competitive, he says great ideas come from data, creativity and courage. Sophia Amoruso, founder of Nasty Gal online retailer, said if she knew then what she knows now she would have been too afraid to do it. She said “Sometimes being naïve has its benefits”. Inbound15 hosted the Malala foundation…talk about facing fear. Malala Yousafzai wanted the basic right to an education faced the greatest fear, death, and now is a Nobel peace prize winner changing the world for many young women and men.
