Once your company has a lot of revenue, you can be choosy.   Until then, any revenue is            revenue.
Most startups begin with greatculture; but amazing startups find   ways to keep great culture.
If you wouldn’t spend 8 straight     hours in the car with any  hire, then dear god don’t hire               them.
Starting a company with a virtualteam is like trying to learn to be a  surgeon watching the Health             Channel.
Most common founder sob story:“So we outsourced it to _______ and now we are stuck with this     pile of junk.” #dontdoit
Data is a startup’s unfair    advantage. Design your   company around the dataadvantage or you’ve already lost.
If you can’t convince 100 people  to totally, f-ing love you, good     luck convincing a million.
If you aren’t working onsomething that scares the heck  out of you, then you aren’t  working on what matters.
The best entrepreneurs have thecuriosity of a child, the humility of a priest and the impatience of a            dying man.
Have an incredibly honest and uncomfortable conversationupfront with your cofounders.    You’ll thank me later.
