Why failing more should be your goal with Susan Danziger, Founder of Eutopia Holdings
Susan Danziger launched her first business to solve a problem she saw, and she hasn’t stopped since. From making books accessible on your commute to combating the climate crisis with Wally Farms, Susan is a serial entrepreneur and investor with a deep drive to positively impact her community.
Today, Susan shares her story. She tells the lessons she’s learned building her businesses and offers tips for raising capital. Susan describes how she built the DailyLit, Wally Farms, and Spark of Hudson, among her many other ventures. She explains why you shouldn’t be using your inbox as a to-do list and shares her experience transitioning to being an investor, as well as her best tips for raising capital virtually in 2021. She notes the cruciality of building your network before starting the fundraising, and she gives some tips for making 30 connections a day. She emphasizes the value of execution and shares what her typical day looks like, noting how it has changed since this time last year. She explains why failing more should be your goal, and she shares ways to get comfortable with the idea of failing. She also gives tips for catching an investor’s attention, presenting a pitch over Zoom, and avoiding Zoom fatigue.
“If you’re not failing constantly, then you’re not trying hard enough…If you’re getting rejected, that’s a good thing, because it means you’re shooting for things.”
– Susan Danziger
