Fact or Fiction:
I first met Kelly over 20 years ago at Def Con when she was running a company called Sun Tzu Security (at which point she was forever referred to as Sun Tzu Kelly) and we've shared a path of entrepreneurship since then.  Kelly has written a beautifully honest book about the ups and downs of start-up life that I think will resonate with many.  Sometimes referred to as the messy middle or crossing the chasm, Kelly shares her own experiences with failure and how she learned to overcome even her darkest moments in "Lost in Startuplandia: Wayfinding for the Weary Entrepreneur" by Kelly Fitzsimmons.
