Jeff Ready quotes from this episode of Igniting Startups:
“So, you know, one of my go-to things is to make sure that I’ve got lots of ideas, hundreds of ideas because it’s easy to become infatuated with just one idea.”— @JReady on @PowderkegCo
“One of the biggest mistakes I think people make is that they do two things at once. One, they fall in love with their idea. And two, they’re so convinced it’s awesome. That they don’t want to tell anyone else about it.”— @JReady on @PowderkegCo
My advice is… to tell everyone about the idea, even if they don’t want to hear it, tell everyone.” — @JReady on @PowderkegCo
“You need to recognize that being an entrepreneur, a startup entrepreneur is a lifestyle choice. Not a career path.”— @JReady on @PowderkegCo
