Too many people confuse “The Establishment” with “The Market”. They are not the same thing and are not related to one another.
If you think some old white dudes are your main barrier to becoming a success then be prepared to get your ass handed to you when your product or service hits the market. There is nothing as ruthless, as dismissive, as true as the market.
It doesn’t care if you’re black, female, transgender or even from another planet. It only cares about whether you’ve made something remarkable.
But, if you can make something the market loves, then sit back and watch the establishment crumble.
