"Founders go wrong when they start to believe their business plan will materialize as written. I advise entrepreneurs to burn their business plan - it's simply too dangerous to the health of your business." ~ Alexander Osterwalder (Strategyzer)

"If you're trying to create a company, it's like baking a cake. You have to have all the ingredients in the right proportion" ~ Elon Musk (Tesla)
