“ I can live with doubt, and uncertainty, and not knowing. I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong. I have approximate answers, and possible beliefs, and different degrees of certainty about different things, but I’m not absolutely sure of anything, and then many things I don’t know anything about, such as whether it means anything to ask why we’re here, and what the question might mean. I might think about it a little, but if I can’t figure it out, then I go on to something else. But I don’t have to know an answer. I don’t feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in a mysterious universe without having any purpose, which is the way it really is, as far as I can tell, possibly. It doesn’t frighten me. ”

It’s okay … not to know the answer? I like that too.
So I havent announced this yet, but I’m working on a new startup. Today is our first Design Day. I’m meeting with one of my programming friends and we are going to brainstorm ideas, designs, and concepts over coffee! Hopefully it will be a productive day! I’m looking forward to it.
I think when first creating a startup the most important factor to consider, in the beginning stages anyway, is the product. Don’t worry about the business model, the business plan, marketing etc.. Its product! That is the main goal. And to obtain that goal you need the best resources available. Whatever that product consists of. For example if it is a website or phone application you need great engineers. That should be your first point of contact. You don’t need more managers, marketers, finance or sales teams. You should not surround yourself in the beginning stages with support teams you need product people!
