Failure is something that we all face everyday. It’s how we react to failures that makes us who we are. Startups are a constant flow of successes and failures. Micah Baldwin, the CEO of Graphic.ly, has most recently created community around digital comics and worked at various startups through the years. Micah joined us at the Startup Mixology Conference in Chicago last fall sharing his interesting perspective on startups, success and failures.

Perhaps the most poignant part of his talk, Micah expressed the following while comparing being an entrepreneur to being a gangster (music included):

As an entrepreneur…
At some point you have do horrible things.

At some point failure enters the game.
