1) Never overpace - Big and Bold is good but you need to keep up 2) Try to get a team where you can have 100% trust 3) Buying a company is way more work than thought, you will get a lot of surprises no matter how much you prepare 4) 1 big customer can kill your business 5) Don't do business with people with which you don't want to have a drink
