How Entrepreneurs Talk to Each Other

Today I had the chance to catch up with a friend who was in town. I brought another friend with me and he brought a few friends who were in town with him. As we all chatted, the conversation turned to people’s interests, and it became apparent that everyone was an entrepreneur. From that point on, the conversation went into overdrive and everyone’s energy level went through the roof.

Over a few hours, we educated each other on the details of various business models and industries. We shared book recommendations, insights learned from building businesses, and long-term strategies, and we made introductions to others who could help.

Today reinforced what I already knew: that entrepreneurs love talking about business. Many don’t get the opportunity to talk about their business outside work. They long to talk about what they’re passionate about but can’t because most people can’t relate. When they come across someone else who loves to talk about business, a magnetic pull draws them together. The resulting conversations are the equivalent of pent-up energy being released. They’re intense, educational, and fun.

I’m glad I had the chance to catch up with my friend and the other entrepreneurs today. I enjoyed the high-octane conversation!
