We caught up with JLABS @ NYC Resident CEO, CJ Wilson, to hear about his advice to entrepreneurs:
What DON’T you do, so that you can prioritize the important stuff?
Time is precious for a digital emergency care company with clients in need, so I need to avoid saying “yes” to anything that distracts from our mission today. Personally, that means constantly looking to the team to reinforce decisions or correct them quickly if I forget.
As a CEO, what’s your advice for anyone who wants to launch a startup?
Be fearless and flexible. Most folks have a great plan, and plenty of passion, but stuff happens. Resources are often limited. Changes have to get made. So skip the worry. Make the changes and move forward with confidence!
How has being a resident of JLABS @ NYC helped you advance your company?
Whether in person or virtual, the reputation of JLABS helps open doors, but the best value comes from meeting seasoned professionals from every part of the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies with invaluable advice on making your business relevant not just for today, but for the long term. Priceless.
