So my advice to Tony and the other first years is - celebrate early and often! Celebrate all the small wins you can along the way, because you're going to need that to keep momentum. But also, I felt as relieved, happy and excited finishing my set of mid-term exams as I do now that I'm getting to the end of the program - its all relative!
Right now I'm on a break in entrepreneurship with Steve Blank - we're looking at the concepts of building a customer base for a new start-up, and have just heard from guest speak Sean Ellis who was the VP of Marketing for LogMeIn. I'm looking forward to a relaxing Friday night dinner following class, and catching up with my husband for a change.
