Winbush’s advice to young entrepreneurs:
“Build a great team of people around you and don’t be afraid to ask questions. I was a music guy and knew nothing about tech. I found the people who knew about it to get the processes in order and to get the company up and running. Plan, execute and understand the plan will change. Don’t worry about the business plan as it will evolve over time. Just go for it and adapt as feedback comes in.”
