Here at Branch, we love hacks, tips, and tricks revolving around growth and community. When one of our early investors and advocates, Ben Narasin of NEA, came to visit our Palo Alto office on Friday morning, we just had to ask him some questions. Check out some of our favorite takeaways from the fireside chat below! 

Luck is important—but the harder you work, the luckier you get.

You have to look at the advice you get from people and decide if it’s experienceopinion, or hearsayvaluable, useful, or worthless.

You never regret the things you try and fail at if you try your best. You regret the things you try and fail at when you don’t try your best.

Intelligence is important, but intelligence is a given with most entrepreneurs. The only real secret to entrepreneurial success is tenacity.

There’s this saying in Crossfit: it doesn’t get easier, you just get better at it. Entrepreneurship doesn’t get easier. You just get better at it.
