The way to get started…

"The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing." - Walt Disney

“The way to get started is to quit talking

and begin doing.”

           – Walt Disney

 Q: What most differentiates an entrepreneur from other bright, innovative people?

A: The drive to put ideas into action without undue hesitation or over-analysis.

This doesn’t mean they don’t gather and analyze info or strategize [although it’s often a more intuitive and hidden process than others are comfortable with.]

It does mean they’re typically comfortable with [ideally] controlled, intelligent risks.


Entrepreneurs are rarely overly-concerned with what others think of them – or of their ideas.

This doesn’t mean they don’t seek input from trusted advisors or listen to key employees.

It does mean they’re not overly afraid of failure.

It means they’re not hung-up about looking foolish, as most people are.

It means they know that many others can’t see the vision or connect the dots until it’s a real concrete ‘thing’.


Successful innovation is often the result of small, controlled failures.

Successful entrepreneurs are good at seeing an emerging need and taking action to capitalize on it – before the window closes.


Entrepreneurs are visionaries and dreamers with one major difference – a sense of urgency to get meaningful results.
