This month on the Huffington Post, I discuss keys to achieving start-up success. Being aware of what is takes to succeed in start-up leadership is critical not only to reaching success but to staying there, too. There are no secrets to what I do. In fact, paying attention to what successful start-up leaders have done and continue to do will yield a fountain of valuable information. Recent New York Times pieces, including one on Stanford’s class of 1994 and a related Op-Ed, have examined some of those who’ve “made it,” as well as some who haven’t, in a way that might make success in the start-up game seem intangible. Not so! Read my piece on HuffPo to learn how you can use the five keys of skill, hard work, history, difference, and luck to your advantage in the start-up game.
What keys would you add to my list?
