Podcast: Ben Silbermann (Pinterest Founder)

Hey team! I know watching a video doesn’t really count as a podcast, but while I was at work I was listening to this little video. The video is from last year’s Altitude Summit when Ben Silbermann (creator of Pinterest) was the keynote speaker.I know its a whole year after he spoke, but it was beyond interesting to hear how the idea of Pinterest was conceived and how it all came to life…especially since the whole process has been hugely successful. You can watch it here.

Here’s my two most important take aways from his speech.
1. Even if you don’t have a detailed plan of what you want to do or who you want to be, surround yourself with like-minded people. It’s sooo much easier to find clarity when your surrounded by a constant source of inspiration.

2. “Just stop talking about it and go do it!” Even if that means walking out on the best job you’ve ever had…in the middle of economic crisis. Thank you….amen.

I’d love to hear your thoughts about what he had to share. Did any of you get the opportunity to see him speak live?

  1. I have not yet been able to attend Alt, but last year I saw everyone’s tweets about Ben’s presentation. I sat glued to my lap top, inspired, laughing, in tears. It was amazing. I can’t even imagine what it would have been like live.

    Love your blog. And big CONGRATS on leaving your job and going freelance!
