  • If you are absolutely terrified of starting a startup you probably shouldn’t do it, Or maybe you are merely unsure of whether you’re going to be able to do it, the only way to find out is to try.
  • A lot of the best startups come from being a side project, don’t rule out all of your ideas.How do you turn your mind into the kind that has startup ideas unconsciously :1) Learn and concentrate about things that matter.
    2) Work on problems that interest you.
