Rule #1 in entrepreneurship is to have fun. As Dale Carnegie said, “People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.” If you’re having fun it’s immediately obvious to everyone around you. You spring out of bed in the morning instead of snoozing for an hour. You are constantly smiling, and grateful for even the smallest things. More importantly, having fun actually makes you a better entrepreneur. Enjoying the process makes it easier to commit wholeheartedly, and fully immerse yourself, both prerequisites to success. This will allow you to push through the hard days, fly past the boring days, and overcome the obstacles that every founder experiences. If you’re not having fun, what’s the point?
The Agile Startup is an inspiring compilation of the most important lessons of innovation and entrepreneurship. It’s easier than ever to start a new business, and the potential rewards are enormous. But even with all of the available advantages and resources, the likelihood of any one business succeeding is slim. That’s why you need the simple, clear, actionable lessons found in The Agile Startup.
