Observations on South Florida business
It’s always refreshing to hear the lessons learned from entrepreneurs who have built successful organizations.
Aaron Hirschhorn, the founder of online pet-sitting service DogVacay, spoke at a gathering of Refresh Miami recently and offered insights into how he built the company that eventually sold to competitor Rover.
Among the lessons learned for launching and growing a successful business:
•Ideas are a dime a dozen, but timing matters more.
•Do less stuff better. Decide what you’re not going to do.
•People matter. Teamwork makes the dream work.
•Venture capital seeks investment opportunities in large markets.
•Stay focused on execution.
•Understand the metrics you are measuring.
•Don’t hire assholes.
