TIP OF THE DAY: You Need To Love Your Business Enough To Starve For It

Robert Stephens GeekSquad

Today’s advice comes from Robert Stephens, founder of GeekSquad, a computer repair company that started as a one man venture and now operates in more than 1,000 Best Buy locations:

Starve yourself. Don’t take the money. Do it yourself.
I recommend a diet of ramen noodles and very little sleep.
If you don’t love your business, someone else will love it more than you, and do it better and be more creative.
I have an irrational love of technology. I don’t care how much I get paid.
–Robert Stephens, Founder, GeekSquad
