Some Good advice, though all is not true

I really liked a lot of advice given here, but there was some things like "pick a good name" where he says he wouldn't take a name like "Yahoo" seriously, that just doesn't fly in the age we're in. Think "Google" "Facebook", "YouTube" some of the largest companies have weird but very unique and brand specific names. So that I wouldn't agree with. There were other things too that don't apply in this age, but overall good advice. I like that he mentions outsourcing quite a bit and using contractors and if you decide to do that with a U.S. based company "Virtual Work Team" is the company to go with!
