It doesn’t matter how many times you fail. You only have to be right once and then everyone can tell you that you are an overnight success.
Don’t start a company unless it’s an obsession and something you love. If you have an exit strategy, it’s not an obsession.
What I’ve learned in these 11 years is you got to stay focused and believe in yourself and trust your own ability and judgment.
It’s not whom you know. It’s not how much money you have. It’s very simple. It’s whether or not you have the edge and have the guts to use it.
The edge is knowing people think you’re crazy, and they’re right, but you don’t care what they think.
It’s always better if you’re honest with yourself and anticipate where the problems could come from.
Always wake up with a smile knowing that today you are going to have fun accomplishing what others are too afraid to do.
Because if you’re prepared and you know what it takes. It’s not a risk. You just have to figure out how to get there. There is always a way to get there.
Pay attention to what’s happening around you. Don’t think there’s just one way to do things—context is everything.
One of the most underrated skills in business right now is being nice.
