The Social Network Movie

Share

If you haven’t seen this movie, go see it.  Here are 6 quick lessons from the movie:

  1. Don’t be so quick to monetize.  Think long term about your venture.
  2. Many have a great idea, but few will execute it.  In history, Zuckerberg will be remembered not those who had the idea “first”.
  3. Stay true to your vision. Understand and remember where you want to take your idea.
  4. Success doesn’t translate to likability. The subtitle of the movie says, “You don’t make 500 million friends without making a few enemies.” Enough said.
  5. Viral is huge. If you have a product where your friends tell their friends and on and on…you are in good shape.
  6. Have signed agreements (or have a REALLY good lawyer).
