Entrepreneurship

The Start-up of You

Inspiration from the co-founder of LinkedIn

In their book The Start-up of You, Reid Hoffman and Ben Casnocha explain that you have to treat your career like a start-up company.

All humans are entrepreneurs not because they should start companies but because the will to create is encoded in human DNA

Entrepreneurship is a life idea, not a strictly business one; a global idea, not a strictly American one.

Before dreaming about the future or marking plans, you need to articulate what you already have going for you – as entrepreneurs do.

When you’re doing work you care about, you are able to work harder and better.

You remake yourself as you grow and as the world changes. Your identity doesn’t get found. It emerges.

Whatever the situation, actions, not plans, generate lessons that help you test your hypotheses against reality.

No matter how brilliant your mind or strategy, if you’re playing a solo game, you’ll always lose out to a team.

The fastest way to change yourself is to hang out with people who are already the way you want to be.

If you want to build a strong network that will help you move ahead in your career, it’s vital to first take stock of the connections you already have.

What will get you somewhere is being able to access the information you need, when you need it.
