#33 - Elaine Stead - Tall poppies and mediocrity
Manage episode 236024661 series 2401617
Today we are joined by Elaine Stead from Blue Sky Alternative Investments.
We go way back to Elaine’s childhood as a young girl who loved homework, learning and ever eager to please.
We talk about Elaine’s academic pursuit of science, then pivoting into the world of venture capital, start up advisory and multiple board directorships.
Elaine and I discuss all things success and failure, and how Australia’s tall poppy syndrome just breeds mediocrity.
I sat down with Elaine on a day, week, month, year that was pretty challenging personally and professionally.
On the day of this interview, Elaine was in the media, and she felt horrible about letting investors and others down.
Life can be very hard sometimes, when no matter how hard you try things go bad.
