360 degrees of freedom

I often say the great thing about startups is that you have 360 degrees of freedom. With a tabula rasa you can do anything. That’s also the problem with startups, as 360 degrees of freedom is probably 359 too  many. The key for a startup is focus, focus, focus.

Find a niche, dominate it, then expand from there. Too many startups try to boil the ocean.
