Insights From the Founder of Travel Startup TripLegend

TripLegend cofounder.

Any entrepreneur can tell you, launching a startup is a learning process. Therefore, one of the best things you can do prior to launching a startup of your own is to learn from those who have blazed the trail. We were fortunate enough to hear some valuable insights during our interview with Alex Ditzel of TripLegend that will inspire, motivate, and teach aspiring and established entrepreneurs alike.

What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?

“Just do it. Try it out. You can always go back to a corporate job.”

What is the best method you’ve found to avoid burnout as an entrepreneur?

“Take time for yourself — whatever works for you (meditation, sports, enough sleep).
Prioritize your time and the tasks — what is important, what is urgent, and what is not.”

What is your advice for coming up with a unique startup idea?

“I think everyone tries to reinvent the wheel, but sometimes it’s just identifying.”

What is your advice for overcoming challenges and failure?

“See every failure as an experiment and a way to learn something from it — as a startup, you usually have limited resources, so be smart and fail fast.”

What is the biggest lesson you learned and what can aspiring entrepreneurs take from it?

“A lot of people have ideas, but only persistence is the thing that can turn even mediocre ideas into flourishing businesses — meaning working every day on your idea.”

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

“You are the only one responsible for your own feelings — no one can make you feel a certain way if you don’t want to.”
