For those who are established, what steps did you take to ensure consistent growth? One thing that has always deterred me is how often businesses fail. I'm looking for an exit opportunity and have been considering building my own thing for a while. Thanks!!

Not established but focused my time on entrepreneurship during the MBA and recently left consulting to get back the time to start something. It's a risk so plan for it as such: give yourself lots of runway and be frugal, be willing to adapt. Most businesses either don't adapt to meet the market need or run out of start up funding because they weren't frugal.

Would recommend ensuring you have one or more prospects you are certain you can convert to customers to help with cash flow initially. You CANNOT run out of cash. Growth is difficult. Still figuring that out myself.

If possible, partner with at least one other person who is accomplished/admirable and whose capabilities differ from yours. This increases the business's surface area and reduces the risk of foolish decisions. Next, outperform customer expectations and ask them to support/refer your nascent business. If you want consistent growth, be prepared to consistently prioritize great customer outcomes over some other things that make one's life good/happy. The sacrifices were absolutely worth it for me, and I wish you every success.

Which function in tech has the best earning and impactful work?

Planning to exit to tech, and I know product managers probably make the most $ but I find their jobs seem to be too much in the weeds. Can be demotivated especially when you just start and work on product with small scale and niche audience. Am I wrong here?

What are some other functions to consider with good $ and impact?
- Strategy & Operations
- Product marketing
- Business development?

Sure enough, after weeks of writing applications and waiting around for responses from the committee members (who were always too busy), I eventually got approved for funding!
