  • <“I wish I knew that sooner” is really common - this is why #LeanStartup resonates with experienced founders.>\n
  • <What’s worse than not living your dream? Sacrificing too much on an idea that should have adapted/killed sooner.>\n
  • <Failure is the most likely outcome for us. To be responsible, we have to be honest with ourselves about this.>\n
  • <Fail fast = learn fast. #leanstartup>\n
  • [The Lean Startup Learning Loop. Start with what you want to learn, then build something that’ll give you real-world data or insight into that. Do this as quickly as possible, so you’re acting on real information and customer contact, and so you can spot your fatal assumptions sooner.]\n
  • [Experienced founders know when to use each tool. Processes are tools too, they are answers to specific problems. Knowing which tool or process to apply is easier when you understand the principles that underlie them. That’s what we focus on at Founder Centric. ]\n
  • [Some principles that underlie Lean Startup and Business Model Generation - what we’ll be discussing today.]\n
  • <Make it your own. "The heart of Lean is to think for yourself in your context." http://sal.st/rWNcZA #leanstartup>\n
