Here are a few featured tips for you (and I) from renowned entrepreneurs, Sara Blakely and Tim Ferris, to help on this start-up journey. Example: "...Embrace what you don't know, especially in the beginning."

Hi Heather,

I think both provide very good points. Sara's video was edited so it was more succinct. Tim took a more operational approach. I think you have to stay true to yourself and your vision and be receptive to help in all its many forms. I worked with a tech incubator once. When they interviewed candidates they focused on the "coachability" of the founder(s). There's a distinct difference between adhering to your dream and just being plain hard-headed! You can be so focused that you block out all opportunities that don't fit the profile. If so, you may miss something big!

Thanks for asking!

Hi Tiffany,

Think I liked the ideas from Sara Blakely the best. Especially, "differentiate yourself" and "Take a Polaroid picture of where you're going to be." What's your take, Tiffany? What do you think are the best ways to do this?
