It is incredibly rewarding to see people using SkinnyScoop's platform and tools in new, exciting ways. And to hear that they are addicted to us (in a good way!)
Over-thinking and over-analyzing things. I know people who took a year to write a business plan. Some analysis is good but then - as the Nike tagline goes - you got to just do it.
1. Don't over-think things - no analysis or person will give you *the* answer; sometimes you just need to take the leap of faith and do it. 2. Things will not go according to plan - there will be both downside and upside surprises; embrace and learn from it all. 3. Team is everything - take the time to find the right people and don't hesitate to change things if someone is not working out.
