5 important lessons for entrepreneurs

Guy Kawasaki posted an entry here where he lists 5 lessons he’s learned as an entrepreneur.

  1. Focus on cash flow.
  2. Make a little progress every day.
  3. Try stuff.
  4. Ignore schmexperts.
  5. Never ask anyone to do something that you wouldn’t do.

I personally like #2 and #5 most. I think it’s important to make progress on projects every day, even if it’s something small, just for the psychological win. Also, how many times have you been filling out a form on a website and just left in the middle of it? How can you expect your customers to suffer through things you wouldn’t do? Remember, your customers probably aren’t as passionate about your product/site as you are so you need to make things on your site that much easier for them.
