Grow smart

by | Oct 11, 2018 | Hustle and Fire

I’m at the Launch Scale conference hosted by Jason Calacanis in San Francisco this week.  And the overwhelming advice in the talks and panels with investors is Grow Smart.  

There is a growing appetite for real businesses, not just hyped up vanity metrics.  This is good news for the startups I coach. Whether a founder wants to build a company that requires outside funding or wants to bootstrap, the right answer is to focus on the fundamentals of a solid business model validated with customers.  

Each day, I publish an idea I'm working on, highlights from a founder coaching session, or other tidbits from my work with founders, investors, corporate partners, and accelerators. Check out the Hustle+Fire blog for more.
