Go with your Hunch. Bernadette Jiwa. – Love Your Work, Episode 81

July 06 2017 – 07:30am

bernadette jiwa interviewBernadette Jiwa (@bernadettejiwa) thinks there’s been an obsession with data in entrepreneurship over the past several years. When we’re not sure about something, we’re encouraged to run tests.

I’ve even heard the advice before “test everything.” Really? Test EVERYTHING? If you really know anything about statistics, you’ll know that many things in a budding venture don’t have a large enough sample size to be tested. If you’re testing literally EVERYTHING, you’ll get nothing done, and your company will have no vision.

Bernadette is author of the new book, Hunch: Turn Your Everyday Insights into the Next Big Thing. In it, she teaches you how to harness the power of your intuition, recognize opportunities other people miss, and create breakthrough ideas.

Seth Godin calls Hunch “a modern classic.” You can buy Hunch at
