By Campbell, Rebekah
What will it take to follow your dream? On the outside, Rebekah Campbell has an enviable life. At thirty-five, she is founder of hot Sydney start-up Posse.com, she writes one of Australia's most popular blogs and she gives inspirational talks at conferences for female entrepreneu...rs. But when she turns off the light each night, she is alone and terrified of the future. She knows that what's important to her isn't money or start-up glory or social media followers. She wants love. She wants a family. And she is stuck. She hasn't been on a date in ten years. She's too embarrassed to list herself on the internet and can't bear the risk of getting rejected. She decides to act. She will go on one date every week for a year. She'll take the tactics she's learnt building start-up companies and apply them to finding a man: strict targets, a repeatable process that she'll regularly evaluate and improve on, and relentless tenacity. Her epic journey will take her on dates with 138 different men in Sydney, New York and San Francisco, while at the same time she faces the immense challenges of raising venture capital and launching a business. She'll face exhaustion, humiliation and heartbreak; she'll meet some strange and dangerous characters. And she will strip herself of the ego and expectations that had been holding her back. She will not stop. 138 Dates proves that the end is always worth the effort.Read more
