Make it your personal mission to build cool shit with cool people.
If you’re thinking about starting a company don’t make it about it be about money, power, success, or the cool factor? These are the wrong reasons to start a company…and if this is all you got, you better be ready to fail.
Yes, you do need drivers as you do in anything, but don’t let these be the reasons why you start a company.
Starting a company is one of the hardest things you will ever do. It’s tougher than any Iron man, fight, school paper, exam, breakup, or fight you’ve ever been in. Starting a company is like getting in the ring with an MMA fighter just to get your ass beat over and over again – the key, getting right back up because anything worth doing is worth fighting for.
Don’t waste another day doing anything other than this. I’ve started several companies for the right reasons and I’ve started companies for the wrongs reasons. What I’ve learned is this simple statement: build cool shit with cool people.
Don’t make the mistakes I’ve made, get out there, find cool people, and get started building cool shit.
If you do this, it will change your life.
