Terrific post from Jason Calcanis on success in business.
The older I get the more I realize that business is about three very basic things:
You have those things it really doesn’t matter what the idea is… you can change your ideas all day long, in fact evolving is what you’re supposed to do in business. However, you can’t substitute hustle, passion, or resiliency.
FWIW, I think those three things are critical to SUCCESS in business. But they are not business itself. It’s an important distinction, as I’ve witnessed plenty of folks with numbers 1, 2 and 3 in spades… who nonetheless were applying them to a miserable business concept and doomed to fail.
