The past two days I’ve been to the NOAH Conference, met a lot of people and listened to a couple of talks/pitches.
Besides all the noise there was one pitch that I actually really liked. Maarten Beucker Andreae, CEO of 2dehands.be, referenced to the legendary Scarface’s lesson number two: don’t get high on your own supply.
While Scarface was probably one of the most influential movies in HipHop as well as Maarten’s favorite movie, he claimed that lesson number two is not true for founders.
Founders should get high on their own supply!
I believe that this is one key factor to success. There are millions of business ideas out there. Choose one that you are passionate about. Be your best customer!
Here’s some more inspiration.
