The best thing to have when launching a business is hunger. We are at our best when our back is up against the wall. When we burn our boats the only path forward is to succeed.
The worst thing to have is too much money. Excess capital is the enemy of creative problem solving. As soon as we get cash in our business accounts, we lose that MacGyver-esque ability to bend the universe to our will.
Want to succeed? Dare to set impossibly ambitious goals with unbelievably limited resources.
