Exactly what @rawsondaniel and I were getting at a couple of weeks ago. No matter how daunting the tech world seems at times we should all remember that this is such an exciting time. Forget about who’s winning in what battle, how much money people are making and just get excited for goodness sake.
“What about young entrepreneurs just starting out? What advice would you give to a 20-year-old with a start-up idea right now?
Well, I think if you’re a 20-year-old, what you want to do is think, “What am I frustrated with in life, and how can I make it better?” I went into the airline business when I was in the record business, and I hated the experience of flying on other people’s airlines. I thought, “I could do it better, so let’s just get one second-hand 747 and see if I’m right.” I think it doesn’t have to be on a grand scale like that, but if you feel like you can do something better, give it a try. And if you do it better, it doesn’t matter if you’re competing with big companies, people will seek your product out. And then find a great group of people around you who also believe in the difference you are trying to make and inspire them to work with you. Just get up and give it a go.”
