  • Slow and Steady. Pauses Good morning. Intro: I’m Mick Liubinskas, co-founder and web-strategist at Pollenizer. I want to start by thank Jason for pointing out how crazy founders are. I’m going to encourage you to be less crazy and improve your chances of creating a winning business. It’s a tough but crucial lesson. It’s one I really want to give. Over the last couple of years, I’ve seen the start-up environment in Australia picking up pace and I really want to keep it going. But one thing I have seen time and time again in start-ups is a lack of focus making a tough job harder. So today I’m focusing on focus. I want to hammer home it’s importance and when you get back to your garage tomorrow or your desk tonight, I want you to be thinking who you can be doing to focus yourself and your business. Brutal and relentless focus. An example to start. Yell out if you can guess what web business I’m talking about. 4 years ago, an application started out with just 3 features and an intial target of less than 20,000. Less than four years later, that company is valued at more than a billion dollars. Can anyone tell me what application that was? NEXT
