A few years ago when I started to get into entrepreneurship and the startup community, I had decided that TechCrunch Disrupt was a must-see event that I had to cross off my bucket list. Fast forward to this past May, and I was there in person watching Fred Wilson give some insightful advice to the entire crowd. I couldn’t believe it. I was a few feet away from some of my most admired role models, and I was there for FREE.
When I tell people this story, their eyes widen in astonishment! FREE?! How did you get those tickets (tickets are typically around $2500)? I simply tell them that I just asked for it.
