Chris Arnold's lessons learnt this year  

Chris Arnold is the first to respond to my call for retrospective posts about what you've learnt this year. He has not one, but several lessons to share:

  • Don't give yourself a year
  • Don't go it alone
  • Recognise your abilities
  • Assumptions will kill you
  • The wrong location can be hard
  • Know who your customers are
  • Work hard
  • Give something back
  • Attend Lean Startup Machine

If anyone else has learned something this year, do let me know and I'll post it up! Merry Christmas!
