How to launch a successful startup without embarrassing mistakes.
What if you could learn more from my failures than from all of Elon Musk’s successes combined? Imagine if you could spare yourself years of heartache and self-loathing pounding your head against mistakes I’ve already made for you.
Amazon best-selling author Lucas Carlson presents an entrepreneurship book unlike any other out there. Most startup books focus on the successes of famous founders, but that success is riddled with egomaniacs and survivorship bias. For every one Steve Jobs, there were thousands of geeks just like him who did everything the same as Steve Jobs but never started Apple. So, following in Steve Jobs’ footsteps might never again lead to success.
For that reason, Nassim Taleb and many others say that learning from mistakes is more robust than learning from successes, because almost everyone makes the same mistakes. The problem is most people aren’t willing to be open, honest, and totally candid about their mistakes.
