Don’t write a social app. Don’t make it free. Don’t ever plan to get funding. Don’t give away shares in your business to anyone. Don’t feel compelled to take on a co-founder or partner. Don’t use bleeding edge tech for your business. Don’t bother with incubators. Don’t surround yourself with other entrepreneurs all day long. Don’t think you need constant input from advisors or mentors. Do your own thing, be an individual, create real value. Find a problem that you yourself have and that you would be prepared to pay for and don’t accidentally persuade yourself that you have a fictitious problem – find a real one that no one else is solving that that is costing you money until it is solved.
