Know your role to lead or support the leader. Failure to understand how you fit into a Startup venture will lead to failure. It’s great to be a team. If you try and be the leader without leading because you don’t like being on stage or making the hard choices is a huge mistake. Many people feel they want to be that person but are not! This leaves the potential leader stagnant and angry in many cases, breaking up good teams. The person who is willing to be out front and “ready to die” with passion is the Entrepreneurs. Following that person into battle is Entrepreneurship. Getting this right up front is critical and it’s knowing yourself. Learn this from past mistakes and failures will insure you are ready to start something.
