1. Think of your idea as a starting point


“if you’re not embarrassed by the first version of your startup, you launched too late.”

2. You don’t need to be a tech wiz to create a website

Our final website (hint: it definitely didn’t look like this when we first started)

(Pro tip: Canva is really great for logos, Squarespace is amazing for making beginner friendly, aesthetically beautiful sites, you can buy a domain name on google domains and if you put some time into it even you will be able to get your site to number one on google.)

3. Accountability, it’s important — find a way that works for you

4. Just do it — nothing beats experience
