I’ve been to the top, to eat filet mignon, to have sweets, traveling around the world, having everything at your fingertips, to being embarrassed just to walk around in society.
My mom is my biggest supporter. She’s been there since day one. She’s always going to have my back.
For me it has always been an uphill battle because my mind’s always racing a mile-a-minute.
I’ve always been someone who’s, like, more of an exhibitionist.
Even if you watch the races I won – the indoor titles and the Olympics – I’ve never really been a superfast starter.
I’m a big believer in the notion that to know where you are going, you have to know where everything has been.
No matter what I’ve wanted to accomplish, whether it was raising capital, investing in a startup, or selling a company, legal has always been a cost and a roadblock to the ultimate goal.
There have been times in my career where I’ve been so dialed-in and focused, and I realized when people told me, ‘Do you remember this?’ And I’ll be like, ‘Oh, I don’t,’ because I was so focused on everything.
The unifying factor in my career across investing and entrepreneurship was that the whole time I’ve basically been an involuntary power user of legal services.
I don’t expect people to understand, but as players who love the sport and have constantly been thrown a rock at by our association and now the Govt, there is only so much one can take.
When I was 31, we sold Twitch for a billion dollars. I achieved everything I ever dreamed of. When I was 35, I realized I was just as unhappy as I’d ever been.
I’ve been an entrepreneur for the past 12 years, since I graduated from Yale undergrad with a degree in Physics and Philosophy, and realized I had no actual marketable job skills.
The hardest part about growing has been making sure we can support the community in the same ways that we were able to when TwitchTV was just starting out.
Our goal has always been to make broadcasters on TwitchTV feel like they own their channel pages, and we’re continuing to make incremental improvements there.
Broadcasting something live from a remote site has always been the sole domain of large media corporations with access to satellite trucks.
I’ve been a very self-dependent person.
From childhood I have played for India. I have represented India. I have always been a proud Indian.
Before I have attended camps at many places such as Bangalore, Jalandhar, and after 2006 it has only been happening at the Gopichand academy in Hyderabad. I had no problems since I live there, but it is not fair. Why camps only in Hyderabad?
In the end my playing career would not have been as big as my career as a manager. I was a talented guy but I couldn’t imagine I would win a title as a player.
I have been through a lot.
I can’t say my life has been dominated by tragedy. I refuse to accept that. I’ve had less than some, more than others.
I’ve always been afraid of being poor when I’m old.
My thirties were ruined by being pregnant. I loved my babies but I had been quite successful before I had them, playing Lady Macbeth and Hedda Gabler, one of my favourite roles.
I’ve always been a horrible public speaker. If I had to give a presentation, I would cry.
