Deepa Maisuria : The one thing I love about Gary is his focus on self-awareness! Not everyone should be an entrepreneur and not every business idea should be pursued even if you think there's demand for it. Know yourself! And do what's right for you :) Great advice!

Serhan Ozulup : If you are brand new entrepreneur; Just find a profitable idea has existing market and copy, put your little twist, make it much better and go with it. Don't try to come up something new from your head that's the quickest way to fail. Remember it's about execution, execution, execution.

Zen Ventzi : Short notes from the video: I think that the best way to come up with a business idea is to reverse engineer what your day to day looks like. I actually think ideas are directly in front of your face. To me the number 1 idea on earth is scratching your own itch. If you're living your life, and say "that sucked", well you gotta business because we really value time, convenience. I'd walk around, judge what stinks and see if there is a way to make it better. The biggest thing that's crippling entrepreneurs of winning is lack of doing. They romanticize around the idea and then spend the rest of their summer debating it until they are 7 months later, haven't done anything and then just loses its energy .. because the second I think I've got something I go, I go. I lose money, I don't lose money, I try, I taste, I adjust, I stop. I'm not scared that somebody says that's a bad idea. My dad used to yell at me "you always change your mind". But that's okay. It's the cost of being an entrepreneur. I think restrictions, rules are very valuable in that way where they are macro. They are terrible in the micro because they become processed and slow but a macro.. I think it's right man.. I think it's right. If you're David, play David's game. If you're Goliath, play Goliath's game. Play your strengths. .. I don't even break from the ethos. The machine runs outside of me. What I try to do is inject that DNA back into the machine so I'm inspired by my day to day not what it used to be like. I'm still doing it. Entrepreneurship is sports. Speed kills. are in the habit of doing it all the time. That makes a lot of sense when I read that, I used to think is he just taking some parts out of his day.. setting that up.. maybe thinking about what it is. But I think that the more that you get into the habit of doing everything all the time, i.e. if you're a constant idea generator.. some of the best people in my industry, they are just spitting out ideas all day long.. a lot of them are that good but they are just in the habit of constantly producing them. Which means that you never have to have that time that you are just sitting down like "shit I need an idea".. .. and you are doing great but somehow you're waking up miserable every day.. it's time to move on. So, no golden handcuffs, don't let the $$ amounts get you into a place where 30 years later you look back and you might've made some money but you were miserable for 30 the only decision that you have to make is if it's going well, are you enjoying it enough for the financial benefit and if you're not, you have to move on

Commercial MarketPlace : Someone once told me to find a need where there is a market of over 1 million people. With a little bit of brain storming I am sure someone could discover something...
