#1: Christopher Gimmer, founder of Snappa:

We chatted with with Christopher, founder of Snappa ($85K/month). In our interview, Christopher says:

One of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned over the years is the power of the long game. For starters, this applies to business and life in general. Sometimes you just need to play the game and things will happen.

Additionally:

Just start with something small and easy to get off the ground and treat it as a learning opportunity. As you start working on it, you’ll naturally start thinking of better business ideas and you’ll have a much better understanding of how to execute on them.

Further:

It seriously doesn’t matter if your first idea sucks and you completely bomb. You will learn so much in those first 3 - 6 months and at a certain point you need to apply what you’re learning from blog posts and podcasts.
