They gave more people a voice. They encouraged progress. They changed the way society was organized. They brought us closer together.”

Mark Zuckerberg business advice quotes Facebook

I know it sounds corny, but I’d love to improve people’s lives, especially socially.

Mark Zuckerberg




Create a Better World

If people have access to more information and are more connected, it will make the world better; people will have more understanding, more empathy. That’s the guiding principles for Facebook leaders that keep them going.




❷ Build a Good Team

The team should make better decisions as a group than any individual would. Take care of both complementarity of knowledge and the dynamics so that way you can maintain this property.



❸ Cultivate Fearlessness

Create an inspiring culture and promote an entrepreneurial environment of fearlessness to foster passion, curiosity and creativity of your employees and to empower them to innovate and execute on their ideas. Both believing in the impossible and not dismissing wild ideas will greatly contribute to your success



Take Risks

“In a world that is changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks,” says Mark Zuckerberg. Things will continue to develop and change rapidly, and if you aren’t willing to take chances, you’ll be left behind. To achieve great success, make bold choices, step out into the unknown and forge your own path.




❺ Excite and Amaze Users

It’s OK if people are underestimating you. It gives you latitude to go out and make big bets that excite and amaze people.



❻ Commit To Simplicity

Facebook is simple, which makes it easy to use and fast to load. It has a simple design.


Mark Zuckerberg business advice quotes Facebook

Since its early days, the company’s motto was, “Move fast and break things".

Mark Zuckerberg




❼  Move Fast and Break Things

Whether you company small or big, place a really big premium on moving quickly. Most companies slow down dramatically as they grow, but if you can focus at every step along the way on moving quicker then you’ll move as quickly as a small company. Invest in building up the infrastructure and tools and also the culture that tells people to take risks and try things out.




❽ Don’t Let a Competitor Get Ahead of You

In Facebook’s earlier years Zuckerberg said, “Whenever any other company gets ahead of you on something that you think is strategic to you, don’t relax until you had addressed the problem."

 Adhere to the Process

Your entrepreneurial venture cannot be successful if you don’t stick to the process. Finish one part of your complex service and then move on to the next. Streamline the process and ensure each part is completed before moving on to the next if you want to be able to achieve your short- and long-term goals

Create an Exciting Workplace

If people aren’t happy, they won’t do their best. At Facebook, employees get a lot of perks. Facebook is packed with goodies, such as free computer accessories, free food, and an on-site barber shop, that make employees never want to leave.






Mark Zuckerberg business advice quotes Facebook

People can be really smart or have skills that are directly applicable, but if they don’t really believe in it, then they are not going to really work hard.
