In everything you do, to be successful you need to give it everything you have—and more. Take the extra time and go the extra step.
When things don’t work out as you originally planned, stop and evaluate what new opportunities exist. The sooner you pivot to available options, the quicker you’ll see the shine.
It’s up to you to make the next decision, the next move. Don’t sit and wait for others. Jump out and make things happen.
If you capture a million users, keep your mouth shut. Be silent and remain so until you are much larger. This increases the likelihood that a larger player in the industry will make an acquisition offer after you’ve demonstrated your success.
You’ve successfully disrupted a market, which will attract capital to fuel your growth.*
Everyone is keeping score: marking up wins and losses as we evaluate our careers, our lives, and our accomplishments. You might attribute your successes or those of others to being lucky or to being at the right place at the right time. Have you ever stopped and really taken ownership in the fact that you are responsible for where you are today?
