"There is no right answer, there is strategy, execution, and iteration. When we started Birchbox and when you start anything, the hardest thing to get over is this fear that you won't have the right answers--because you don't have the experience, the perspective, the time to perfectly organize a plan. The reality is that there are many paths to success; there is no one path. Realizing that frees you to move fast and get things done in the best way that you can. Once you start executing and realizing that you can make reasonable decisions that lead to successful outcomes, you gain the confidence to keep going. For us, it is critical that we all keep that in mind, because every day brings new firsts." --Katia Beauchamp, cofounder of Birchbox More philosophies from successful entrepreneurs: http://f-st.co/AKDHhmi
