1. Build your tribe
“Surround yourself ASAP with good people, whether that’s co-founder(s) or key first hires.”

2. Focus on your finances
“Be laser focused on cash flow- it is the lifeblood of your organization; if you have a business model that has a longer or variable sales cycles, ensure you have adequate capital to get you through the rough patches- everyone will eventually face them.”

3. Look for smart money
“Find supportive investors who provide not just capital but active mentorship; be open to advice.

4. Be kind to yourself
“Protect your personal free time and invest in yourself; you are no good to your business or your employees if you are not of sound body and mind.”

“Don’t forget to thank the people who have helped you along your way.”
