The most important thing for starting out…is to get to know people.
People want to know you care before they care what you know.
Stay close to people you know (in college) because you never know what they’ll do.
Trust your heart and trust your gut.Be flexible and adaptable.
Be very cross-disciplinary,
If you think you’re onto something good stay with it.
Nobody is ever going to be more passionate about your idea than you.
There are many valleys of deaths.
Put in place the steps so you can step up and step up.
Trust your heart and trust your gut.
