Being an entrepreneur isn't easy. But it also isn't all that complicated.
Last week, I was cleaning off my desk (which tends to pile up), and ran across an email from April 2008. I had been asked to speak to Rockies Venture Club entrepreneurs about what to do during "tough times." Of course, things have gotten a bit tougher since then.
Here's what I said:
"My advice to entrepreneurs doesn't really vary with economic conditions:
-figure out something that's broken;
-figure out a clever way to fix it;
-figure out who you want to work with;
-figure out a way to cash flow it as you develop it; and
-figure out a way to pay yourself once you get going."
Pretty simple. Not so easy.
