Don't solicit feedback on your product, idea or your business just for validation purposes.

It can stop a lot of multimillion-dollar ideas in their tracks in the beginning.
I've met people who didn't even know there was a Calvin Klein; they thought it was just the name of a product.
The only way to advertise is by not focusing on the product.
Among the many problems with taking the Bible literally is it reduces the most mysterious and complex of realities to simple - even simplistic - terms. Yes, scripture speaks of fire and damnation and eternal bliss, but the Bible is the product of human hands and hearts, and much of the imagery is allegorical, not meteorological.
Much of the messy advertising you see on television today is the product of committees. Committees can criticize advertisements, but they should never be allowed to create them.

It is flagrantly dishonest for an advertising agent to urge consumers to buy a product which he would not allow his own wife to buy.
Good copy can't be written with tongue in cheek, written just for a living. You've got to believe in the product.
Many manufacturers secretly question whether advertising really sells their product, but are vaguely afraid that their competitors might steal a march on them if they stopped.
I tend not to like an awful lot of what is going out under my name now because it is just all product. Who needs it?

I love what the Valley does. I love company building. I love startups. I love technology companies. I love new technology. I love this process of invention. Being able to participate in that as a founder and a product creator, or as an investor or a board member, I just find that hugely satisfying.
It's really rare for people to have a successful start-up in this industry without a breakthrough product. I'll take it a step further. It has to be a radical product. It has to be something where, when people look at it, at first they say, 'I don't get it, I don't understand it. I think it's too weird, I think it's too unusual.'
The product of the artist has become less important than the fact of the artist. We wish to absorb this person. We wish to devour someone who has experienced the tragic. In our society this person is much more important than anything he might create.
Our moral traditions developed concurrently with our reason, not as its product.
Friedrich August von Hayek
You can hype a questionable product for a little while, but you'll never build an enduring business.
Simplicity is not the absence of clutter, that's a consequence of simplicity. Simplicity is somehow essentially describing the purpose and place of an object and product. The absence of clutter is just a clutter-free product. That's not simple.

Ten bajillion product ads notwithstanding, your looks are another thing that's basically genetic.
It is a myth that art has to be sold. It is not like stocking a grocery store where people fill a pushcart. Art is a product that has no apparent need. The salesperson builds the need in the mind of the buyer.
Now, product placement, whichever way you look at it, whether you like it or you think it's disgusting, or whatever, it's what it is.
