Lessons learned — advice from one entrepreneur to another

From Amir Elaguizy‘s 58 things I learned at YC:

  • There is no shortcut around learning, you just have to learn it
  • Everything is harder than it looks
  • Real businesses have customers
  • There is no one thing that makes a company work
  • The best companies strive to empower the individual
  • The worst companies strive to maintain control
  • If there is no competition you’re probably screwed
  • It gets harder, not easier
