Here’s some of the things learned by Jason Goldberg running Fab.com I totally agree with:
- Do one thing.
Find one thing you can do really well and focus entirely on that one thing.
- Say no!
Don’t do any thing else except for your one thing. Say no to meetings, ideas, proposal, b.s., outside of your core one thing.
- Service matters more than sales.
Sales go up and down. Service lasts forever.
- Make mistakes.
Take risks. Move fast. Learn faster.
- Celebrate your challenges.
Force the team to focus on why you suck, even while you’re growing.
- Be transparent.
The more people know, the better.
- Measure Everything.
- Fill your gaps.
Bring in new talent to spur further growth.
- Say please & thank you.
People do things because they want to, not because they have to.
- Have fun.
Life’s too short to do it any other way.
