Founders Song: The Climb by Miley Cyrus

Yes, the video to this song could be part of the new Barbie movie. BUT: every line of this song's lyric describes a founder's journey.

🎶 There's always gonna be another mountain

🎶 I'm always gonna wanna make it move

🎶 Always gonna be an uphill battle

🎶 Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

🎶 Ain't about how fast I get there

🎶 Ain't about what's waiting on the other side

🎶 It's the climb

As founders, we have to love the uphill climb. Building a company means solving complex and unforeseen problems every single day. If we wait for the current big problem to pass, we'll remain stuck forever. We have to learn to embrace the struggle.

🎶 The struggles I'm facing

🎶The chances I'm taking

🎶Sometimes might knock me down, but

🎶No, I'm not breaking

🎶I may not know it

🎶But these are the moments, that

🎶 I'm gonna remember most, yeah

🎶Just gotta keep going

From my experience, there is no successful startup story without many little failures unseen by the public. Steve Jobs was kicked out of Apple, Paypal was voted the "worst business concept of the year," and Joanne K. Rowling was rejected with her first Harry Potter script from a dozen publishers.

For me, these turning points became great memories and learnings.
