#entrepreneurfail Animal Kingdom Lessons

 

It’s a dog eat dog world.  The animal world provides insights and advice for new entrepreneurs.   Some examples below:

  1. Free as a bird – New founders should allow their creativity to fly freely and unencumbered.
  2. Hard working as an ant – Remember this little critter works hard all winter to ensure the future.
  3. Playful as a kitten – Entrepreneurs should have fun creating their business.
  4. Brave as a lion – Startup owners must bravely enter new territories, and compete head to head with other companies.
  5. Quiet as a mouse – Although it is important to get noticed, being too boisterous is counterproductive for new entrepreneurs.
  6. Fast as a rabbit – Before you’re done reading this post, another business has gone obsolete. Founders must be nimble and quick.
