“Make money before you start asking for it. The best way to validate your market is to get customers.”

Glover Quin, Safety for the Detroit Lions
Quin lived on about 30 percent of his take-home pay during the first three years of his NFL career

“I’m going into my ninth year in the NFL and we are just now moving into our dream house. That’s the difference between rich people who keep their money and rich people who lose their money: They both have nice things–houses, cars, the luxury lifestyle–but the ones who are able to keep their money live the luxury lifestyle last, while the ones who lose their money live the luxe life first.”

Debbie Sterling, founder and CEO of GoldieBlox
A STEM toy company geared toward girls

“My then-boyfriend and now-husband told me the only way to give my startup a real chance to succeed would be to focus on it full time. I saved as much money as I could, so that I had enough in the bank to last me an entire year, and put all of my attention into GoldieBlox. Nine months later, I launched a Kickstarter campaign and raised more than $250,000–and I was finally able to give myself my first paycheck as GoldieBlox’s CEO.

Zach Perret, co-founder and CEO of financial startup Plaid

Joe Fernandez, co-founder of social analytics startup Klout
Klout reportedly sold to Lithium Technologies for $200 million. Fernandez is also co-founder and CEO of miscellaneous-equipment-rental startup Joymode

“What made Klout hard was that we raised money at too high a valuation. I’d heard about not focusing too much on high valuation, and I thought, ‘That’s not going to happen to me.’ But after our first two rounds, the final round was at $200 million. It was a pressure cooker–that was so high a valuation that the return our investors needed was really intense.”

Max Levchin, PayPal co-founder and CEO of retail lending startup Affirm
“When I was going to school in Chicago, I got one of these old-school department store cards–and went from getting 10 percent off on jeans to owing more than $500 and getting calls from collectors. Ultimately, I was able to pay it off, but I felt guilty throughout–and I learned that something that’s too good to be true is never a possibility in the real world.”

Jessica Mah, co-founder and CEO of accounting software company inDinero
“When inDinero ran out of funding and I had to lay off our staff several years ago, I learned to never read or believe your own headlines, good or bad. I got drunk off our press, and we grew and spent accordingly. Big mistake!”

Mark Cuban, Shark Tank investor and owner of the Dallas Mavericks


“From my dad: Don’t use credit cards.”

Martellus Bennett, Tight End for the Green Bay Packers and founder of media startup The Imagination Agency
“Invest in the people who help bring your dreams to life–financially and emotionally.”

Daymond John, Shark Tank investor and Fubu founder
“When I was 22 years old, a guy who owned a little bodega in my neighborhood told me, ‘If you really want to start a company, you better dig under your couch for a couple of extra dollars, stop going out to dinner four times a month, trade in your car for a cheaper one, and raise that $40,000 or $30,000, if you can, by yourself.’ “

Neal Gottlieb, founder and CEO of Three Twins Ice Cream


“My mother showed me how valuable each and every dollar was by working as much as she could, by clipping coupons, and by stocking up on groceries when they were buy-one, get-one-free. She passed on this sense of thrift to me–and, sure, a friend still makes fun of me for refusing to spend $15 on a roller coaster ride back in 2001, but that helped me save up $70,000 by age 28 to start my business.”

Steph Korey, co-founder and CEO of travel goods startup Away
“Rent for our first office was $6,000 per month–and we didn’t have revenue yet!
We had only five people at the time, but we furnished it to fit 14, and we sublet the extra desks for $500 per month each.”

Whitney Beatty, founder and CEO of Apothecarry Brands
Apothecarry Brands designs marijuana-storage containers. Beatty is a former television development executive at Warner Bros.

“I’m in the middle of raising money, and it’s easy to feel you have to be hat in hand doing whatever song and dance is needed to get an investor to invest. But the managing director of my accelerator, Jack Scatizzi, told me in no uncertain terms that not all money is good money, and to not underestimate my value.”

Alexa von Tobel, founder and CEO of LearnVest

Sheila Lirio Marcelo, founder, chairwoman, and CEO of online caregiver platform Care.com


“My mom told me to make certain that I truly understand the motivations of people seeking to invest with me. You need to assess the partnership as if your investors were your in-laws. When I pitched VCs, I paid attention to whether partners talked over one another, or if they were on the phone during the pitch, to determine their true interest and their values in respecting entrepreneurs.”

Mokhtar Alkhanshali, founder and CEO of Port of Mokha
Port of Mokha imports and sells Yemeni coffee. “My childhood mentor and friend, Nasseam Elkarra, helped me realize that if I pursue my passions, there are only two possible scenarios: You will become an expert in that field and have a thriving business–or you will become an expert in that field and lead a happy life.”

Sallie Krawcheck, co-founder and CEO of investment platform Ellevest, author, and former Wall Street executive
“One of my early bosses taught me: Invest steadily, a bit out of every paycheck, in markets and down markets. That way you make it a habit.”

Katelyn Gleason, founder and CEO of health care tech startup Eligible
