3. Ruth­less fo­cus.

Finweek English Edition - - ENTREPRENEUR -

Nic Har­alam­bous, founder of Nicharry.com (e-com­merce); co-founder, for­mer CEO of Motribe (mo­bile): Do one thing and be ex­cel­lent at it. Do that one thing in­cred­i­bly well for long enough and even­tu­ally you’ll get no­ticed. Do it for long enough, well enough and keep get­ting no­ticed and you’ll have a real business.

The other les­son is quite tech/ on­line spe­cific and rel­e­vant to the cur­rent cli­mate:

Rais­ing money doesn’t make you a great business, profit does.
