Create Things. All The Time.
There are many rules that today’s startup should adhere to. The single most important rule doesn’t have a number; it has an action:
- How captivating is a well-written business plan?
- What does a beautifully designed PowerPoint deck convey?
- What does a “perfect” elevator pitch really mean?
The fact of the matter is:
I don’t give a damn.
I want to see what you and your team can do – not just hear you talk about what you can do.
One of the greatest lessons that I have learned is to never stop building. Leave your comfort zone. Do something that you can brag about. Talk means nothing. As an entrepreneur myself, I can tell you that no matter how great your pitch is, it will not necessarily equal a well-crafted product.
Practice makes perfect.
That product may start out at poor quality, but don’t be afraid to crash, burn and repeat until your project is the best thing ever made.
My advice – my rule – for a successful entrepreneurial venture is to make something.
Don’t talk. We listen to talk all day.
It’s a powerful word – and an even more powerful action.
