"Start talking about your start up and reaching out to people a year before you think you are ready. Apart from getting some great advice that will improve what you're working on, by the time you are ready to launch you'll be much faster and way more connected. Often as females we are too risk adverse and feel like we need to make everything perfect before we promote what we have. That's just too late and you'll miss a lot of opportunities by waiting."
