10 Lessons Every Entrepreneur Can Learn From Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh:
Very smart man & I would love to say this would have been more a help to have this information 3 years ago a the start of my own company. But that would be a lie, because at that point I was so confident because of my accomplishments at the last company, I was convinced if I did it for that company just imagine what I could do for my own. So to this I would add, don't get cocky, don't assume just because you know the business inside & out you could do it again with ease because you have already learned from your mistakes. And before you decide to dive in...try to remember what may seem to have been trivial habits may very well be the things that made you succeed. And most importantly... what made you passionate about you were doing & do you still have that passion because if you don't, don't bother because that is ultimately what will motivate others.
