Just pay attention to all these things and success will occur naturally.
Guest commentary by Ömer Akyürek
- The company will be the #1 priority of your life for the next five years (at least).
- You will lose a lot of friends.
- MVP stands for Minimum Loveable Product.
- You will look horrible.
- It doesn’t matter, if you are an early bird or a night owl, as long as you work 10 hours every day. At least 6 hours with your team together.
- You will burn money. A lot.
- Only the paranoids will succeed.
- The most important aspects of success are: Team, Product & Distribution. In that particular order.
- Your love life will suffer. It’s better to find the right partner before you start your own company.
- Negativity is something you have to deal with every day and for a very long time. Don’t ignore it, but get used to it.
- You need to be obsessed with the problem you’re solving.
- There are no such things like weekends. You will be thinking about your company 24/7.
- You need to read a lot and I’m not talking about Twitter. Books are your teachers.
- Networking is really important. It’s like planting a tree and collecting the fruits many months later.
- Your job as a CEO, if you are one, is to keep your eyes on the product and to motivate your team.
- Listen to your body and rest when it tells you to do so.
- You need to keep communicating with everyone, every day.
- Routines will make or break you.
- If you want to be successful, be consistent.
- Workout. A healthy body leads to a healthy mind.
BUT at the end of the day it’ll be all worth it. Never forget, that true success is not about wealth rather about having health, love, family & friends. And please never forget that entrepreneurs aren’t born, they’re made. I hope the advice above helps you get a little closer to your goal! Just pay attention to all these things and success will occur naturally and, if you have any questions just DM me @oemerax.
