Follow Your Passion

David Kelley, IDEO

Kelley describes three important steps in starting a company:

1) Follow your passion

2) Hire great people

3) Focus on process. His passion is design, but there must be a balance between passion and business issues. People often worry too much about the financial side of the company and fail on the emotional side of the company, he says.
