"Totally agree that focus so value. In working with startups, the big lesson that I discovered is that less is more. The less I do, the more success I have. It seems counter-intuitive for someone who likes to get stuff done, but it is easier to tactically execute when there is less for everyone to focus on." - Mark Evans

I have all the equipment; just need to get going." - Mark Evans
