12. Story of a young italian entrepreneur (unemployed).

The Great C didn’t get me, and I am here, but I find less energy and less time to tell about my startup than when I was an employee.
Certainly in this country if you are 30 years old, you’re just a loser.
The work world has either discarded you or rejected you as soon as it can (“you’re too experienced / you have over qualified / you want too much, we can’t afford a resource at this price“).
I don’t know if you’ve heard about this little problem that we have in Italy .. its name is Unemployment. I almost want to call it The Great D, yes, the cousin of The Great C.
Yet it would be so easy: just thinking that in a not too distant future my startup starts and may give work to a group of 5 to 10 young people, gives idea of the potential of the creation of a startup.
Of course, not everything is so easy. It was necessary to do a big job of research and analysis of the profiles that we needed (at the beginning there were only three, as in the post”The Importance of Being a Team” https://diaryofacrisissurvivor.com/2014/04/02/the-importance-of-being-a-team/) to find the human resources and especially to structure the work processes.
But we are succeeding, at least for now. And it’s a job that every startup, in my opinion, should structure: figure out where they want to go, what goals to achieve and especially using resources such as human, with responsibility and its objectives.
So we fight daily The Great D. (and The Great C).
