Giving You a Heads Up

We know that you’re excited to get started, but keep three ideas in mind:

  • warning Hedge your risk. Unless you're independently wealthy, don’t quit your job and go after an entrepreneurial venture. Build an income and ease into the entrepreneurial world.

  • Partner whenever possible. Don’t try to do everything yourself. Find established professionals and agencies where you can build good will and help one another. Establish mutually beneficial value.
