"In the End Go with Your Gut" - Here is How to Make Sense of Conflicting Startup Advice, from the sage Mark Suster

mark suster

Everybody has a blog these days and there is much advice to be had. Many startups now go through accelerators and have mentors passing through each day with advice – usually it’s conflicting. WTF? There are bootcamps, startup classes, video interviews – the sources are now endless. What is a founder to do?

There are some smart if not somewhat cerebral bloggers I read who say that you shouldn’t take any startup advice at all because it’s too generalized to be useful to your situation. While I have some sympathy with their intent I must point out that their opinions on this are – ironically – startup advice. And not a point-of-view I particularly believe in.

So what IS one to do?

1. Triangulate

2. Draw from Frameworks

3. Think Critically about Your Situation

4. In the End Go with Your Gut
