Ideas Last (with Danielle Gillespie)

Today’s episode is a little different. Danielle Gillespie is a technologist, consultant, and advisor to tech startups and she focuses her approach on one theme: ideas last. And she’s also living a pretty good midlife.

I am excited to have her on the show because I’m intrigued by her approach to start ups and many listening are entrepreneurs, have a side business, or are thinking about starting a business.

She shares the core of her “ideas last” approach, discusses where founders tend to get in their own way or even self-sabotage, staying relevant in your career after 50, the advantages of being older in a youthful field, and thinking through career changes in midlife.

While you may not have a tech startup, her approach and ideas go across fields and situations, especially the second half where we talk about staying relevant and the advantages of midlife.
