“not to seek a single mentor before you get moving. I think a lot of people make the mistake of reading and researching and searching for that one person that they think they need to latch onto to help them get started. And of course, the most important thing that nearly all successful entrepreneurs will say if you asked them after a few years in business is what actually started their learning at a much more significant pace was starting… I don’t think anyone person knows all the answers, I don’t think anyone person can help us understand what we need to do.

Not that it’s a zero-sum game or race to the finish but I think if they really want to excel you need to love what you do because that’s when you will put in the extra time and be really passionate about every detail”…[Listen for More]

“I think question I asked friends talk to me about business opportunities or becoming an entrepreneur leaving a long-time career to do something new. My question to them is: Are you willing to be unreasonable? And the reason I asked that question is because I feel like entrepreneurial undertakings really require, not in a negative sense that I think most people jump to when they hear the word unreasonable, but really if you step back and you are honest about it everything about starting something new is unreasonable.
