More Words of Wisdom from Elon Muskby Scott Edward Walker on December 20th, 2014
To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.” Each week, we share a favorite video clip of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics. This week, we again present Elon Musk, a brilliant entrepreneur and the co-founder of Tesla, SpaceX and PayPal.
In this interesting, three-minute clip, Elon provides some solid advice to founders launching a startup, including the following:
- “Have a high pain threshold.” (at 0:10)
- Your product or service “has to be really great.” (at 1:02)
- “Constantly seek criticism.” (at 2:01)
- “You should take the approach that you’re wrong… Your goal is to be less wrong.” (at 2:56)
I hope you enjoy it. Cheers, Scott
