Much of the advice that entrepreneurs get regards how to “follow their head.” How to make logical decisions about their business. This talk looks at tools for the other part of the startup equation: how to follow your heart. Bill Warner discusses his theories about where the energy comes from within founders, and how to use that energy to make a startup most successful.
