Guy Kawasaki on entreprenuers

If you look up the definition of “entrepreneur” in the dictionary, chances are Guy Kawasaki’s face is right there with it.

So I immediately responded when I saw him tweet about the top 5 things he’d learned as an entrepreneur.

Really good observations. Here’s a sample:

4. Ignore schmexperts. Schmexperts are the totally bad combination of schmucks who are experts–or experts who are schmucks. When you first launch a product or service, they’ll tell you it isn’t necessary, can’t really work, or faces too much competition. If you succeed, then they’ll say they knew you would succeed. In other words, they don’t know jack shiitake. If you believe, try it. If you don’t believe, listen to the schmexperts and stay on the porch.
