When launching or growing a startup, the first thing to start up is your attitude. You must be on fire, on the edge and on the attack silently. With this personality mashup, you’ll be a burning entrepreneur.

I could not agree with you more. Having been an entrepreneur for more than 20 years I have found myself focusing 90% of my time with the team building product and 10% outwards. The 10% outwards is spent when the time is right - not before and not after. Over the past several years I have found too many leaders focusing too much time outwards and not enough time building product.

Seems a lot of people don't get the difference between writing great content on your blog, doing excellent inbound marketing, etc VS. trying to become "famous" in the industry.

A good example would be the difference between Paris Hilton and Natalie Portman. They are both famous, both of them "do marketing" but they do it very differently. I'll take the Natalie Portman company every day - talented, hard-working, puts energy into films vs. putting energy into fluff marketing and PR.
