You Are Not a Ninja

Children, the happy heyday of cute, irreverent titles is over. Your startup failed, your VC dried up, your dreams of being bought by Google vanished. Even the speaking circuit you carved out in tiny ad clubs in rural areas is coming to an end. Update that resume and hit the bricks, dicks.

  • Hmmmm. Your post had me remember one of the funniest Ninja's ever. Ask a Ninja. www.askaninja.com I had forgotten about Ninja. So I went to the site. And it seems Ninja stopped creating in February. So did he apply to work with Jetpacks?

    Your take btw is something everyone goes through and some learn the hard way. The dot.com was brutal on many folks who got jobs as VP's at startups that upon failing thought at 27 could apply as VP at GE. But as a perfect case study while the dream isn't burst the titles are nice. And owning my own business right now maybe changing my title to head Ninja or Supreme Alien Commander might be fun ;-)

  • Not a Ninja? How about a Nimrod?

  • "Ninja versus Guru versus Rock star," the comic book or animated series. Or maybe the project to salvage Mike Myers. Ready? Go!
