Quotes From Kevin:
“Don’t go looking for ideas. Go have experiences. Typically, when entrepreneurship works well something is going to hit you that is inefficient and doesn’t make sense. And even that is not enough. You need to wait until it’s a thing that keeps you up at night, like when you’re in the shower or walking to your car and can’t stop thinking about it and get excited about it and want to get after it. These things are really hard to do and need that, otherwise you’ll fizzle out after 6 months, 1 year, or 2 years. You won’t build anything great if your not giving it all your attention.”
“The best founders in my opinion set a very high long term vision, prioritize their milestones in a way that always moves the needle toward the long term vision, and they don't let short term obstacles stop them when they get in the way. They are notorious problem solvers with a deep passion for what they are doing.”
“I have a problem with the "because I told you so and that is the way it has always been done" type of authority. I constantly question things, I’m hyper curious, and if things are not done in a way that makes sense to me, then I look for better ways to do them.”
