Specialization is for insects, not entrepreneurs


Rewrite the following Heinlein quote for entrepreneurs instead of for humans: A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyse a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.


An entrepreneur should be able to start a business, manage a team, raise capital, develop a product, market a service, create a brand, handle finances, network with others, innovate, pivot, adapt, inspire, lead, work independently, solve complex problems, understand new technologies, use different tools, make tough decisions, deliver high-quality results, and stay up-to-date with the latest trends and opportunities in the market. Specialization is for insects.- Robert A. Heinlein
