Evan Williams shares his 5 Keys to Entrepreneurial Success for any startup fiend looking at creating something memorable in this world.

 

Ev Williams Advice For Entrepreneurs

 

1. Work with Amazing People

Don’t compromise on who you choose to found your company with and hire. Do not put up with ego-centric personalities or downer attitudes.

 

2. Take on Big Challenges

It’s pretty simple: Hard things are valuable; easy things are not so valuable. Reaching the mountaintop is rewarding because it is hard. If it was easy, everybody would do it.

 

3. Focus

Say no to most things: Features. People. Partnerships. “Coffees.” Projects. Only a few of them really matter. (Yes, it’s hard to know which.) Don’t get distracted.

 

4. Take Care of Yourself

When you don’t sleep, eat crap, don’t exercise, and are living off adrenaline for too long, your performance suffers. Your decisions suffer. Your company suffers.

 

5. Love those Close to You

Failure of your company is not failure in life. Failure in your relationships is.

    Joel,

    As an affiliate of a blogging platform (Empower Network), this is exactly what makes success predictable.There is no secret or magical formula for success, but to follow basic principles that you touched upon. I also think that an additional point would be how we define failure (perspective) and how to appropriately respond to it. All successful entrepreneurs understand the value of lessons learned through “failing forward” (John Maxwell).
