Recently, YEC member Andrew Laffoon wrote an article for Fortune titled, "The One Challenge Every Startup Will Face." The Mixbook co-founder and CEO explains that, "success comes to those who persevere despite the odds and never give up. As an entrepreneur, you have to have the grit and determination to face seemingly immovable obstacles and impossible challenges, to bear the crazy ups and downs inevitable in startup life, and look for solutions instead of obsessively worrying about the problems."
