What I got out of this interview with Anthony Amos:
1. Burn Your Ships
When you are going into business, you have to have the mentality that it has to work. Don’t hold on to your day job or even think about falling back into it if things don’t go well. Don’t give yourself that option.
2. Be Passionate About the Business
Even if you’re not passionate about the industry that you’re in, you can be passionate about the business itself; about making it work.
