    5. You Can Pivot, But You Should Never Twirl

      You Can Pivot, But You Should Never Twirl

      The lean-startup zealots are pushing terrible advice that can put your business in a death spiral. To avoid that, prioritize your customers over your product.

      I'll go berserk if I hear one more person pontificate about "pivoting." I know it's the biggest business buzzword of the past couple years (I guess "disruptive" will have to suck it up and settle for second place), but we don't have to beat the concept to death.

      I do get it.

      Insourcing: An Unexpected Way to Solve Staffing Needs

      Steal, don't invent

      Steal your business model. We don't have a shortage of business models, it's okay if you pick one that's already working for someone else.

      Steal your web design. There will always be enough people brave enough to invent whole new ways of interacting online. But unless you're an interaction designer or your business model depends on something new, do us all a favor and use something that already works.
