I think it’s smart to always keep an eye on the companies that sit within incubator communities, which bring together the skills and expertise needed to grow an enterprise.
No first-time entrepreneur has the business network of contacts needed to succeed. An incubator should be well integrated into the local business community and have a steady source of contacts and introductions.
The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.
Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard.
Any time is a good time to start a company.
Ideas are commodity. Execution of them is not.
I knew that if I failed I wouldn’t regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying.
If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late.
The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing.
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
What do you need to start a business? Three simple things: know your product better than anyone, know your customer, and have a burning desire to succeed.
When you find an idea that you just can’t stop thinking about, that’s probably a good one to pursue.
