1. Entrepreneurship is a lifeskill and its teachable. The only way to excel at it is to practice.

2. If you don't take action, you'll never create the evidence that figures out what's next.

7. The essence of entrepreneurship is driven by productive stupidity - the willingness to acknowledge what you don't know.

8. If you can't predict the future - and increasingly you can't - take a small step as quickly as you can to control it.

9. Don't obsess about the analytics - there's almost a 100% likelihood that your original business plan will miss the mark.

10. Embrace the mantra - I think, therefore, I test.
