The Washington Post has compiled a list of quotes from fellow entrepreneurs on what you should do this summer. Is any of it on your list?
Dive in, head first. â€œTake the plunge. Youâ€™ve been sitting on an idea for a couple years, itâ€™s time to act. Put together a business plan and start getting feedback from people you respect.â€
â€” Elana Fine, director of venture investments, Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship
Test the waters. â€œUse neighbors at the barbecues, the people on the beach, fellow vacationers on your family cruise to market test your (new) product, flavor or next big idea. Thereâ€™s nothing better than real customers to tell you what they think.â€
â€” Oliver Schlake, PhD, entrepreneurship teaching fellow, business consultant, researcher and entrepreneur
Send your employees packing. â€œMake your valuable employees take a vacation and then do their job for a week. It will put you back in touch with what is going on in your company.â€
â€” Harry Geller, entrepreneur-in-residence, Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship
