Some notes I took on Tracy Chou's talk at Startup Grind 2016.

Tracy Young, CEO of PlanGrid, says the best founders are Beavers and Honey Badgers

From Tracy's talk at StartupGrind!

Be a Beaver:

Beavers are patient

Beavers work hard & are patient. As founders you will face obstacles that you just don't want to do because of how much work it is.

Beavers don't complain. They are creative.

Be creative with your company. Things are hard, find creative solutions. At PlanGrid

Beavers iterate and improve

We need to iterate and improve on our code, our product, as leaders, as humans etc. Admit to what we suck at it

Be a Honey Badger

Honey badgers survive

Even when bitten by poisonous snake, it survives. Startups never

Honey badgers stand up for their team

As founders and leaders, we need to stand up for ourselves, our company, AND our team.

Find your inner animal.

Find the right people Find the right problem Find your passion

Find your passion.

Otherwise, it's too hard.
