The 10(0) Things Entrepreneurs Should Always/Never Do
Thursday April 6, 6PM – 8PM @ Catalyst Ranch
Second Shift member Danny Schuman’s been interviewing entrepreneurs from all walks of life, from outdoor guides to choreographers to web designers to nurses, and it’s taught him a boatload of new lessons. He’ll use what he’s learned as a starting point to get the group going, then we’ll all chip in. The idea is to collectively come up with 100 tips that entrepreneurs should either always or never do to succeed. Whether we come up with 100 or 1000 or 74.5, each person will capture his or her own Top Ten, and leave with new ideas he or she can put to use right away.
