I feel that there are three things I could say that I could have done differently.
One is I feel that it took me a while to understand the value of really senior and experienced management. I should have focused on getting more senior and experienced management to be a part of the company a bit early on.
Two it took me rather long to learn – and I am still learning! – how important sales and marketing in a business. I feel I didn’t really fully internalize that sales is the lifeblood of any company. You don’t sell anything, you don’t have a business! Today I do truly put a much greater emphasis on sales and marketing than before.
