Have you ever heard the expression that you need to walk before you run? Within the last week, two individuals have stated this to me because they feel that I have been jumping knee deep into new ventures without knowing enough about them. In most cases I would have to agree with them, but in my personal case I would have to disagree.
When I started my first company I did not know one thing about running a company. Plus, I had no corporate experience and I did not know anyone who could help me out. Due to this I lost all my money during my first venture, but this mistake got me to where I am today. Now granted if I learned to walk before I started running I probably would have saved thousands of dollars, but who says I would have still made millions.
Due to my age I am probably naive, but I personally feel that in many cases you just have to start running and not worry about all the things you learn when you start walking first. I would love to hear what you think about “learning to walk before you run”?
PS: If you fall when you are running, please don’t get mad at me.
