Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Jack Dorseyby Scott Edward Walker on April 12th, 2012
To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series entitled “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.” Each week, we share a favorite video of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics. This week, we again present Jack Dorsey, Co-founder and Executive Chairman of Twitter and Co-founder and CEO of Square, and indeed an extraordinary entrepreneur.
In this interesting presentation, Jack shares the following three pieces of golden advice for entrepreneurs:
1) Start “drawing” your idea and “getting it out of your head” (and seeing it from a “completely different perspective”), and then share it with others;
2) Recognize when “luck” is around you – i.e., recognize the conditions and situations around you that encourage the execution of your idea; and
3) Iterate – i.e., get user feedback and be “an editor” – and take all the input and refine your idea.
I hope you enjoy it. Many thanks, Scott
