Over the years as an entrepreneur, I've had the opportunity to model entrepreneurs. Some of them have behaviors that produce the results I want, but a lot of them behave in ways that don't produce results. The latter may be more fun, but I don't want to just have fun and be broke. I want results. I want to be a real entrepreneur.
If that describes you as well, this episode is for you. In it, I talk about the 10 shades of wannabe entrepreneurs, and why I highly recommend avoiding any of their behaviors.

I would say without a doubt, yes.
In the spirit of generosity though, let me share a few insider tricks that are rarely talked about in the entrepreneur magazine and conferences:
1. Marketing trumps all: "Good product and good marketing" don't beat "decent product and amazing marketing."
2. You need a real team: Like Bill Gates used to say, "I never did anything alone."
3. Raising capital should be done in precise phasing: Bringing capital from outside sources is rarely wise right at the beginning. Bring in capital once there's proof of your concept rocking and rolling with real momentum.
