The Worst Advice I’ve Heard as a New Entrepreneur [Fast Company]

It was only after spending the past couple of decades of my career working at big companies that I decided to become an entrepreneur. Other entrepreneurs can surely relate to the surplus of people offering their unsolicited counsel. Usually it's easy to tell which input to dismiss, but sometimes even bad advice can leave you second-guessing yourself. Here's the worst of what I've heard and how I've pushed it aside.

  1. Don't go after a “Niche Market”
  2. Better think twice–There's no going back
  3. You might fail, so why bother?
  4. Accept the highest offer
  5. Work with who you know
  6. Hurry
