Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard.
Make mistake faster, learn early/often.
Your integrity is more important than your investors or paycheck.
It’s hard to do good job at everything, be humble, don’t fool yourself.
Timing, perseverance, mission, will turn risk into assets.
No more romanticizing on being a founder or raise $, is time to build, fortunes are created in down markets.
Last and I will use a beautiful quote:
If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late.– Reid Hoffman, LinkedIn co-founder
