    Nice tips there, the one I should definitely start putting into practice is "Don’t buy a new business book if that last one you purchased is still sitting on your shelf unread. Pick up the unread book and read it."

    "If you ever catch yourself refreshing a comment stream or message board post over and over waiting to argue – they’ve already won." :D this happens sometimes.

    I've been guilty of that in the past myself, remonray. Thankfully I've grown out of that now and have developed a thicker skin over the years :)

    "You don’t know everything. No one expects you to know everything. Don’t ever pretend to know everything." Specially when you are a leader, you must know how to listen from your people.

    "Don’t obsess over why one client didn’t choose to go with you. It makes you look desperate. Obsess when ten clients choose not to go with you." Our first potential client seemed interested and like a sure thing. It was a blow when they never got back to us. Stressed about it for days which doesn't help anything. Not everyone who seems interested and enthusiastic is going to follow through.

    Being 15+ years in the biz will definitely give you a knowledge of things and looking back to those past years will definitely see that most of it time wasters but then you'll definitely see your progress. She's now a CEO not bad for someone who started a site non-commercial.
