How startups traditionally work:

  1. Big idea.
  2. ???
  3. Profit!

How startups work during an investment bubble:

  1. Profit!
  2. ???
  3. Big idea.

How I like to work:

  1. Work with people who are good at something. Learn how to do that thing from them.
  2. Work with people who are good at something else. Learn how to do that thing from them.
  3. Repeat.
  4. Try to put all the things you’ve learned together in a new way.
  5. Profit?

My way takes longer. Too long? Maybe.
