Don’t manage your startup by other people’s blog postsPosted: February 21, 2014
One of the true gifts from the internet to entrepreneurship has been the volume and accessibility of information on how to build and run a company. Thank you internet for helping to democratize and liberate entrepreneurship like that.
Most good entrepreneurs will suck up information like a sponge, digest it and apply key learnings to their companies if and when they think it makes sense.
Here’s what doesn’t work so well: a CEO (usually young & at a small startup) reads a blog post in the morning and changes the company’s product, strategy and / or operations later that day based on that blog post. Same CEO, same procedure next week. After a while your team may get the impression that you have no idea what you are doing.
They may be right.
