"Don't Settle For Silver"

In a sold out meeting of the Austin Chapter of TEXCHANGE, successful entrepreneur and venture capitalist, Jimmy Treybig, gave solid advice to the audience of Texas technology executives.

"Don't Settle For The Silver"[ working for the gold] was the message that rang though the loudest. Those who want to build businesses that will change the world need to know in advance that they want success. While it is not just about the money, you need to strive for the big win.

Regardless of what you do for a living, this is how you should live: Go for the gold!!!

Treybig does not do a lot of public speaking, which made his nuggets of information even more of a treasure chest of inspiration for the standing room only crowd at the Austin Country Club last night.

Throughout his talk, it was clear that he is a businessman, advisor, technology guru, CEO, mentor, coach, student, teacher, thought leader and a huge fan of start-up companies. Sometimes he was funny, often insightful and his presentation rocked the room. Occasionally when we attend a networking event we get lucky with a spectacular program. That was what happened this time!!!

Have A Great Day.
