Keys to Success for Great Entrepreneurs: Learn from the Best

jeffburtonI was fortunate to watch Jeff Hoffman, a successful serial entrepreneur, who co-founded Priceline. make a short but powerful presentation at the Startup Grind Global Event where he gave great advice to entrepreneurs. Here are some of the key points from his presentation:

  • Solve real problems
  • Don’t chase money, chase excellence; Money follows excellence
  • Win a gold medal at one thing: “Be the best damn something in the world and everything will happen.”
  • Build a great team
  • Get out of your office and be where your customers are
  • Find your Golden Purpose which is the intersection of “the thing you’re best at,” “the thing you love,” and “something the world values.”

If you have the time, I encourage you to watch his presentation. It’s about 10 minutes long but very insightful.
