Choosing the right battles

It is meaningless to spend time and energy over things that are really insignificant. There are many more important things to obsess over — gaining customers and making money. While hunting big game one should not waste time on swatting mosquitoes.

Make the haters love you

It is very important for a startup to get known in the industry. It is important to get attention for the entrepreneur, the idea, and the company — it’s the gateway to every money that is raised.

Pitching the idea with more confidence

It is very important to know how to pitch oneself and one’s business.One should be ready to quickly explain what the company does and know how to tell people it is better, faster and adds real value to the marketplace — then make huge claims to the world.

Creating urgency for the business
