Weekly motivation: Kevin Systrom

It’s not easy building and stabilizing your online presence. You’ll need to mix in innovative ideas with tried and tested internet strategies from the guys who have been there and done that. This week’s motivational lessons are from a CEO and co-founder of a popular social media platform.

To businessmen, he is known as the man who built a $1billion startup. To us, he’s the genius who gave us Instagram. Here are 5 quotes from Kevin that helped him hit jackpot before the age of 30.

1. “If you’ve got an idea, start today.”
He goes on to say that he doesn’t mean you should up and quit your job from day one, but small progress can always be made to start a movement. Once you’ve got your momentum going for you, it’s an uphill battle from there. So there’s no better time than today to get started.

2. “Great products sell themselves.”
If the idea is interesting enough, you won’t have a hard time convincing people to go for it. Your product must be able to help people ease their lives or at least make things simpler. If your market feels that your product is something to get hold of, it would be a guaranteed success.

3. “Every startup should address a real and demonstrated need in the world.”
Kevin explains that if you build a solution to a problem that a lot of people have, it’s so easy to sell your product to the world. This not only gets you sales but it gives the people a solution to ease some difficulties or challenges in life. Win-win situation.

4. I think not focusing on money makes you sane because in the long run it can probably drive you crazy.”
Money is a big factor in the business world. Companies need it, advertisers need it, consumers need it. If we focus more on the quality of products we are producing instead of being in it for the profit, work would be a lot easier. Being driven by numbers will only suck the passion out of you.

5. I’m always in awe of people who are artists in their fields – people who understand that simply by taking ideas and translating them into reality, they’ve created a value in the world.”
Art is known as the act of making something beautiful out of creativity. This thought can be applied to almost any field. By coming up with a great idea and then finding a solution to make it come to life, you would be contributing to the beauty in the world.
