The real reason my startup was successful: privilege.
An awesome and frank look at the support structure you may (or may not) have around you because of privilege. And it's not like he didn't work hard to make a go of his startup -- he assuredly did.

Annie Dookhan chased renown on a path paved with lies - The Boston Globe
"The problem was that much of what she said was not true. Dookhan had neither a master’s nor a doctorate. How she managed to get results so fast, no one is quite sure."

Trinidadian-American chemist Annie Dookhan seemed ambitious, passionate, confident, a 10x worker and super productive, determined, competitive -- all these things we tell women in STEM to be. And she lied, and defrauded the public, and betrayed science and the criminal justice system. A cautionary tale.

My Wiscon 2016 speech - NALO HOPKINSON, AUTHOR
"Listen: If I've learned anything in this past little while, it's that there are people who will warp one's message, in violation of one's principles. I know that soon after this speech goes public, there will be those who will either mock it, or appropriate its language for their own ends. They're going to say that I'm modelling the very things against which I'm advocating. That kind of flipping the script has become a popular tactic. I've begun to take it as a measure of success, in part because said appropriation is reactionary, not originary. They envy a particular sound bite or concept, so they try to make it their own, or, failing that, to make fun of it."
