Lessons From Launching 20 Biz’s in 3 Years: Read if You’re Thinking About Starting a Business

Summary:

1. Launch Too Soon

“If You’re Not Embarrassed By The First Version Of Your Product, You’ve Launched Too Late.” -Reid Hoffman, Founder of LinkedIn

It’s easy to get caught up in perfectionism but the most important thing is launching and getting your first version out there.

2. Call Everything A Project

Businesses have to make money and have all sorts of expectations but projects don’t have the same built-in expectations. If you want to alleviate the pressure of launching something new, think of it as a project!

3. Launch Anonymously

If you’re worried about how other people are going to perceive what you’re building, then don’t put your name on it when you first get started. It’s that simple.

4. Failure = Learning

Learning compounds and the more you build new things, the easier it becomes to build new things. Focus on learning and improving because every failure has valuable lessons.
