You had me at hello

Text Quotes
Much-derided chick lit, chick flicks, and chick magazines have left ambitious women in a bind. Why is it that I, a young woman, can read ‘GQ,’ enjoy ‘Fight Club,’ and subscribe to ‘Thrillist,’ while the idea of a guy doing the same with ‘Glamour,’ 27 Dresses’ and ‘Daily Candy’ is nearly unheard of?  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) The first time you meet someone, they’re a new acquaintance, the second time you have a bit of an understanding, and the third time you meet them, you’re old hats.  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) When I started my first company, I still had a 40-hour a week job. I was working on my company on nights and weekends before I took the plunge and gave up a salary.  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Starting a business isn’t for everyone, and it’s not what you should do if you aren’t sure what else to do. It requires thick skin and the willingness to carry a great deal of stress, sometimes alone. It’s more often a life of failure than a life of success, and the majority of successes came after a long road of disappointment, and often shame.  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) When The Daily Muse initially wanted to launch a job board, our first ideas were insanely (and needlessly) complex. We wanted to integrate with social networks, gather rich personal data to build predictive algorithms, and put together numerous cool visualization tools before launching out to the world. We were just sure users would love it!  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) When talking to first-time entrepreneurs, I often ask them: ‘How do you know that people want your product or service?’ As you can expect, the answer is often that they don’t yet, but will know once they launch. And they’re right. That’s why it’s critical to launch as quickly as possible so you can get that feedback.  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Get your product in front of actual, living, breathing strangers. Your college roommate’s approval does not mean there’s market demand.  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) I had been a veteran of pretty challenging job searches, so I knew firsthand how frustrating, confusing, and demoralizing the job search process can be. Even after you get a job, many people join companies and discover in the first couple weeks that they aren’t a good match with the personality and values of the company.  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) You know, as most entrepreneurs do, that a company is only as good as its people. The hard part is actually building the team that will embody your company’s culture and propel you forward.  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Work-life balance for founders doesn’t look like work-life balance for everyone else. Starting a company isn’t a nine-to-six job - or a nine-to-nine job, or a nine-to-midnight job.  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) There were so many lessons I learned the hard way: missing out on a raise because I didn’t know to ask, having colleagues consistently get credit for my ideas because of how I spoke up in meetings. When I looked for a resource that addressed the challenges I was facing, I couldn’t find it. There was nothing.  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Understanding your employee’s perspective can go a long way towards increasing productivity and happiness.  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) We knew when we started the Daily Muse, we wanted a recruiting-focused business model rather than an advertising-focused one. We felt like publishers were being forced to go to more and more extreme lengths to monetize through advertising  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Have a go-to pump up song. Mine is Shakira’s ‘Waka Waka’ from the 2010 World Cup (don’t judge). Play it only when you’re ready to turn into your most badass self  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Launching a start-up, you need to get a lot done quickly. Every day is different. Everyone pitches in with everything. It’s easy for the founding team to say, ‘We’re flexible. We all help out with everything!’ But when it comes to making decisions - that flexibility can spell inefficiency and disaster  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) If you’re able to arrange a trial period with a new hire, do it. It will give both of you a chance to make sure the position is a good fit - and can help you avoid being in the awkward situation of wanting to fire someone three or four weeks in  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) For almost the first year of The Muse’s life, I would do 5 to 8 networking events a week. And I don’t necessarily think that’s the right path for everyone, but I realized that as an entrepreneur, one of my strengths was finding the right people who could help us. I didn’t come into startups with any network  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Even your most talented employees have room for growth in some area, and you’re doing your employee a disservice if the sum of your review is: ‘You’re great!’ No matter how talented the employee, think of ways he could grow towards the position he might want to hold two, five, or 10 years down the line  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) What do I want to do with my life?  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Thinking big is only one part of being a successful entrepreneur  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) I had been a veteran of pretty challenging job searches, so I knew firsthand how frustrating, confusing, and demoralizing the job search process can be. Even after you get a job, many people join companies and discover in the first couple weeks that they aren’t a good match with the personality and values of the company  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Sure, you’re an intelligent and highly capable individual, and you are learning a lot on the fly as you build your company. But you also need to come to terms with the fact that there are things you have chosen not to be an expert in  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Sure, it’s fun to chat with people with interesting backgrounds who seem to have a passion for your company. But a job interview is not a friendly chat. You need to determine whether candidates, can they really do the job. So ask them to prove it  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) When you start a new company, you have to do it all. Yes, all of it  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Get your product in front of actual, living, breathing strangers. Your college roommate’s approval does not mean there’s market demand  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Understanding your employee’s perspective can go a long way towards increasing productivity and happiness  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) You know, as most entrepreneurs do, that a company is only as good as its people. The hard part is actually building the team that will embody your company culture and propel you forward  (Kathryn Minshew Quotes) Starting a business isn’t for everyone, and it’s not what you should do if you aren’t sure what else to do.
