Ten Commandments of a Corporate Entrepreneur

  1. Come to work each day willing to be fired.
  2. Circumvent any orders aimed at stopping your dream.
  3. Do any job needed to make your project work, regardless of your job description.
  4. Build a network of good people to assist you.
  5. Develop a spirited team; choose and work with only the best.
  6. Work underground as long as you can ... publicity triggers the corporate immune mechanism.
  7. Be loyal and truthful to your sponsor.
  8. Remember it is easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission
  9. Be true to your goals, but be realistic about the ways to achieve them.
  10. Be thoroughly engaged, take ownership, and persevere.
