INSTANT MBA: Entrepreneurs, The Only Bubbles You Need To Worry About Are In Your Bathtubs

Brad Feld

Today’s advice comes from Brad Feld, an early stage investor and co-founder of Foundry Group:

“Today, there is once again enormous focus on entrepreneurship as the salvation for many things, with the naysayers starting to say “but it’s a bubble” or some variant.”

“If you are an entrepreneur, you can build a significant, powerful, sustainable business taking advantage of market expansion during the up cycle and consolidating your position during the down cycle.

“Don’t get distracted by speculating about “bubbles” other than the ones in your bathtub. Instead, spend your energy creating amazing products, thrilling your customers, building an awesome organisation, and living your life.”
