Running a startup is like a joyride. One has to be ready for every uncertainty. At times it is fun while stressful at another.
Uncertainty also fosters the opportunity to go against all odds and written conventions.
In most cases with a small team, it unites them and brings them closer. A founder has to give more responsibility to everyone with a firm belief that the team will do it.
Most of the time we live in our echo chambers and blinded by pedigree and bias over age and experiences.
My learning from the small journey so far has been:
- Give responsibility. Keep a firm belief.
- Mentor, be there to guide
- Treat humans as humans, not slave or resource
