I'm bursting with ideas!

Exhilarating to see positive impact of my ventures on those who most need change.
Frustrating and humbling to realize there isn't really a proven formula for start-up success. That even great ideas and products don't always get adopted or see success. But working 24/7 to create that "magic" formula for success over and over again has its own appeal for entrepreneurs like me.
#1 Mistake - Underestimating - from how much to raise to how long something will take.
#2 Mistake - Building a "nice to have" and not a "painkiller". Insufficient customer research coupled with subjectivity and a dollop of short sightedness. But then again some great companies have emerged from just such a birthing ground...
#3 Mistake - Not course correcting fast enough.
1. Solve a Real Customer. Focus - Focus - Focus.
2. Business Model is key!
3. Hire the best and fire fast.
