Lessons Learned: Week of November 26, 2012

I wanted to use this blog as a way to document experiences, learn from others who have already been there, and share what I learn along the way. To attempt to keep up with this blog, I am committing to jotting down what I’ve learned at the end of each week. Here’s what I learned during the week of November 26, 2012:

  1. If you have a bad feeling about a client up front, don’t let a price tag change your mind. You probably had a bad feeling because you know what is best for your business, and moving forward with the wrong clients takes up precious time, energy and resources that could be used elsewhere.
  2. I’ve always heard that hiring the right people is a key ingredient to a successful startup. Hiring a great candidate has added value to our business in just one week! I guess it’s too early to say anything concretely, but I’ve got a good feeling.
  3. Producing high quality work while building a great network continues to lead to good things.

If you have any thoughts on these subjects, I would love to hear them! – Rachel
