Best Startup Lessons of 2010

I am looking forward to 2011!

This year I intend to invest more time with my family and friends, build a great company alongside an incredibly talented team, and to push myself to grow, learn and better myself.

Looking back at 2010 I am grateful for my family, my amazing team at Performable, that I get to spend my days focused on solving hard problems, and for all the great people that I have met because of this blog.

I spent a few minutes digging through my stats to see which startup posts were most popular over the last year. What amazes me is not this list of posts but that I met hundreds of people because of these blog posts. That is truly awesome, thank you.
