You don’t have enough Mentors

One way to keep from making the basic mistakes that kill most start-ups is to remain engaged with mentors. Notice the s on the end.  A proper mentor can offer a couple of things:

  • Expertise in things you are less knowledgeable in (see the Golden Boy sin)
  • Perspective on short-term problems: It’s nice to have someone who is not embroiled in whatever you are facing to help you
  • Long term dedication to your strategy
  • Grown-up logic
