We had the good fortune of connecting with Sydney Golden and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sydney, how do you think about risk?

Taking risks is the only way to grow in life. If you aren’t willing to take any risks, then you aren’t willing to grow, and you are guaranteed to stay exactly where you are in life. What you need to know and truly believe, is there’s no such thing as failure. When you are willing to take a risk, you are telling the universe you are ready to grow, whatever the outcome is, it’s pushing you towards the next level. Even if you deem the outcome as a failure, it’s not, it’s a lesson. The only requirement is that you learn from every type of experience and that’s what propels you forward. The only failure is not trying at all. The bigger the risk, the bigger the reward no matter what the outcome is.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Shoutout to Together Digital Denver chapter. My Denver Together Digital sisters gave me the confidence, tools and support I needed to get my very technical business up and running. As a non-technical founder, it’s daunting to build a business so heavily weighted in tech. And thank you to COVID. If there’s one good thing that has come out of COVID for me, it’s You’re Golden. The lock down gave me the space and time I needed to stay laser focused on starting up.
