The path of entrepreneurship is scattered with successes and failures, long days and hard work. There are days you wonder why you launched the company. On other days, you are so glad to be bringing your idea to life.
In reality, starting a company is easy. But building and growing a company is tough.
As someone who has worked with dozens of tech entrepreneurs over the years, I can totally relate to this sentiment. I have been part of highly successful companies and a couple that didn't do so great. But each experience taught me some valuable lessons. Each interaction with the founders and the innovators was a learning moment. I now try to emulate those learnings as an entrepreneur.
Here are some key takeaways:
1. Believe In Your Idea
2. Think Short-Term
3. Pick Your Mentors Judiciously
4. Build A Purpose-Driven Brand
5. Pivot As Needed
6. Be Humble
