Advice from entrepreneurs (like you!)
When we feature members on our blog, we include a Q&A that asks what advice they'd give to a new freelancer. Yesterday, the New York Times had an article that does much the same for entrepreneurs, picking the brain of Howard Shultz (founder of Starbucks) and mining the aphorisms of L.L. Bean himself. The latter, as might be expected, emphasized the importance of the customer. And the founder of Carl Jr.'s restaurants was the recipient of some good advice early on: hold yourself to the same high standards for running the business itself as you do for the product or service you offer. So, even if you've never been a member of the week, here's your chance to share your wisdom in our comments. What advice would you give to someone who's considering going freelance or is just starting out?
