Lessons learned from other businesses

Since I’m approaching my 150th post on this site, I wanted to recap some of the lessons I've learned from the experiences of others pursuing their business startups. I’ve picked eighteen of my favorites so far:

  5. Lice Squad: there’s money to be made in providing a service many others don’t like to do

  6. Sprinkles Cupcakes: getting a celebrity to endorse you pays off royally, especially if it’s Katie Holmes.

  7. Vala’s pumpkin patch: if you think outside the box, you can use your college degree in non-traditional ways and be successful.

  9. Jibbitz: all it could take is one year to make millions
