Rob Spiegel shares his personal story of businesses he has started. Some failures, some successes. Here are his conclusions:
There are a couple things I’ve learned over the years. Get your nut [overhead] small. Find something you really, really like doing – you’re going to have to do it a lot, and you’re going to have to do it at weird hours, and if you have family, you’re going to have to do it while they’re around. Get some luck somewhere – rub Buddha’s belly, pick up every coin you find in a parking lot, even the pennies – I have this superstition that if you don’t pick up stray pennies, the universe won’t give you stray wealth. Ignore your former bosses. And don’t quit trying.
