3 Lessons Learned in my 2nd Year as an Entrepreneur
2013 was frustrating. My companies didn’t grow as fast as I would have liked them to, but HappiLabs.org has progressed and we see a happy future for the scientific community. Here are 3 lessons, among many, that I learned as a Chicago entrepreneur in 2013:
People will believe in your company if they believe in you…
…Have a passion, a cause, anything that drives you. Customers and investors will follow.
Excellent communication is extremely important.
…Without communication skills, look forward to failed expectations, misunderstandings, and awkward conversations.
Starter League was a great investment…
…I learned to code the front-end of HappiLabs.org, made wonderful friends, and gained a better understanding of how the brain development and web development are very similar.
