The stuff that can go wrong part 1

The Mashup:

Combining two good things doesn’t always result in something great, especially in the startup world.

Identity Crisis:

Founders often waste time on identity, but in reality, most identities have little impact. Focus on more important matters.

Overcorrecting Success and Failure:

Don’t assume that success at one startup guarantees success at the next. It’s often the opposite.

The Flawed Founding Team:

Build a team that complements each other’s strengths and weaknesses instead of copying each other.

Hiring Freeze:

Avoiding hiring can have serious consequences. Startups must know when and who to hire for success.

Firing Phobia:

Don’t be afraid to fire employees who aren’t the right fit. Startups need the right people in the right positions.
