Here are the first 4 from Cuban’s entry, A Couple of My Rules for Startups: “1. Don’t start a company unless its an obsession and something you love. 2. If you have an exit strategy, its not an obsession. 3. Hire people who you think will love working there. 4. Sales Cures All. Know how your company will make money and how you will actually make sales. ”
Cuban was inspired to write the list by his friend Jason at Calcanis.com who blogged, How to Save Money Running a Startup (17 Really Good Tips).
