7/ You must enjoy (or at least embrace) being constantly out of your comfort zone while solving increasingly challenging issues. EOTS
6/ The flip side is their product/business/company has more traction and is harder to completely screw up bc if inertia.
5/ This means that they increasingly face more complicated issues for which they have less natural talent and relevant experience.
