Are you ready to quit? Entrepreneurship is a lifestyle. You want to save up for 3 years.

🚀 My friend Winston Mok (ex-Google PM, founder of Woosh) just launched his new IoT-powered air filter today! Personally, I am always impressed by Winston’s passion about improving indoor air quality and his amazing leadership to bring a product idea to life.

However, the decision of leaving your comfort zone and starting from scratch is not easy for anyone including Winston, so Winston and I made this video about decision making for aspiring entrepreneurs.

Below are three messages from Winston that really stood out to me:

1. “Entrepreneurship is a lifestyle.”

2. “You want to save up for 3 years before starting your own company.”

3. “You don’t need an idea or VC funding before quitting your job.”

To find out why he said so, check out the video below:
