The Ideal Islander
This document is a living document as we constant perfect and protect the pure and authentic vision of the Ideal Islander. As we are all explorers in this conceptualized individual, please hold to no standard when reading this document. We must consider this work like a constant introduction to a very complicated person; a person who is comprised of the extreme in humanity and the sacrifice of humanity. Consider this document like nothing more than a hand shake from this figure, the introduction, the understanding, the hope comes with your pursuit of your own dreams. Attempting to become an Islander is impossible, it’s not a title, it’s an action.
Startup Island - Islanders (REF: data.startupisland.tv)
We felt it was time too write this because yesterday we lost an Islander while he was practicing knife juggling….in all seriousness, he felt that the path of an entrepreneur is a lone one and that self interest is the greatest tool in business therefore the Island was not a good fit for him as this contrasts with our authenticity and openness of knowledge. We recorded the final phone conversation, but feel that sharing it would damage his reputation and potentially harm his future efforts when he may have not meant what his statement. We will keep tabs on his progress in his company, because it will be interesting to contrast an entrepreneur working in secrecy, and the Islanders who don’t. Who knows! :) The adventure continues! :)
