What he’s learned from being an entrepreneur: It’s difficult to beat people who never give up. If you truly believe in your idea and what you are building, that fire in the belly can carry you a long way, even though some situations might seem hopeless. Also, never underestimate the power of partnerships and collaboration. Hire good people and treat them right.
Advice: Stop worrying about what might go wrong and focus on what might go right. Don’t overthink it. If you have a good plan and the passion to pursue it, do it. You will be amazed at the support you will get from people who want to see you succeed. As the great Wayne Gretzky once said (and has been repeated many times), “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.”
