Advice for entrepreneurs starting out

Have the audacity and follow your convictions. If you believe in your idea don't let others discourage you from being bold and finding a way to make it happen, someone will always tell you it's been done before. Connect with people (as we all are), listen to those in your network to avoid pitfalls, and be smart about protecting your ideas from those with deeper pockets, as well as those you ask to partner in your idea for further development. Success comes from being passionate about your subject, act with integrity and constantly looking to innovate.
