The co-founder of one of the world’s most high-profile artificial intelligence conferences discussed the qualities that he believes distinguish successful technology entrepreneurs.
In an interview with CNBC’s Tania Bryer last week, Charlie Muirhead, who helped create AI festival CogX, said that being an entrepreneur meant getting used to “running through barriers every day.”
Despite these obstacles, Muirhead believes it is critical “to be able to pick yourself up, dust yourself down, and get straight back into it.”
He also highlighted the need of remembering that setbacks are “only a stepping stone on the road to achievement.”
According to Muirhead, these stumbling obstacles might range from a terrible meeting to someone quitting your firm. “Sometimes it has to do with you, and other times it has nothing to do with you.”
“These minor failures come every single day,” he said, “and you simply have to build up this rhino skin and imperviousness to them.”
“If you do that — call it grit or resolve, whatever you want to call it — I believe you have a great chance of succeeding.” After creating CognitionX, Muirhead and digital entrepreneur Tabitha Goldstaub established the CogX festival in 2017.
From Hollywood actors Robert Downey Jr. and Matthew McConaughey to iPod creator Tony Fadell, the event has drawn a diverse spectrum of high-profile speakers over the years.
Muirhead founded software startup Orchestream, content studio t5m, and video rights network Rightster, which is now known as Brave Bison, before founding CogX.
Before going to university, Muirhead reportedly worked as a roadie for singers such as Prince.
So the bottom line of this, we all fall down but just be able to pick yourself up. As we all require enthusiasm to propel us ahead, and this is especially true when we are all off. Do something that makes you joyful or inspires you to renew your enthusiasm. We’ll all need fuel for our zealous flames, so go out and collect some zeal logs.
