To Succeed, You Must Have Heart

On 8/27, we will be having our final session as part of the 12-week basic training class. You don’t want to miss this one.

Having a framework for thinking about your startup is helpful. At least, I hope it has been helpful. Using a good framework, like Insight-Driven Iteration, helps you figure out where you are and where you need to go next with your business.

But something is missing. To be successful as an entrepreneur, you need more than an analytical framework. Knowing where to go is one thing. Getting there is an entirely different matter.

There is a missing ingredient that we haven’t talked about. I’ve never talked about it before in any FounderSensei class. It has nothing to do with Steve Blank or Customer Development. It has everything to do with you, your journey, your heart, and your mindset.

To succeed, an entrepreneur must have heart. 

"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." - Henry David Thoreau

Our next session will cover how to cultivate heart, resilience, positivity and the inner strength required to create something from nothing.

I hope to see you all on 8/27 at 2 pm.
