Ok, it might be a little cliché to quote Winston Churchill in a headline, yet it was the first thing that came to my mind when I was reading a post by U.C. Berkeley student Henry Liu. Together with two fellow students he has founded Polarate. A service that offers its users an opportunity to discuss and talk about even the biggest controversies. When they launched the site on March 31st – after only three months of developing – they were expecting thousands of visitors. Turned out this was a little too optimistic. Now, almost two months later, Henry shares what he has learned from this deception and how he and his partners saved the company.
The post contains ten lessons that can help or inspire every entrepreneur who just got started. I’d like to add one too. When you’re working on your PR and blog, make sure you share your knowledge, doubts and joy in an equally honest and open way as Henry did.
