Cheezburger Network CEO Ben Huh’s Career Advice for Entrepreneurs

When Cheezburger Network founder and CEO Ben Huh was starting his career, he had one rule: Only take a job if you can work directly with the CEO. In doing so, he says, “I probably learned 10 percent of the things that they’d try tell me, but that 10 percent was a hell of a lot better than 10 percent I could have learned elsewhere.” In part three of our Media Beat interview, he explains, “When I joined companies, I didn’t care where I got in; I only cared about where I got out.”

Huh says, “The best advice I can give [entrepreneurs] is to start,” adding, “What’s really important.. is the first-time entrepreneur puts that risk fear aside.” He admits “it’s that first step that’s probably the hardest to take,” but as Huh has proven, it can really pay off.

He also talks about taking inspiration from others to create an original product, why you should never get too comfortable at a job, and the qualities he seeks in new hires.

Hard-hitting journalism it ain’t, but a few of us undoubtedly prefer kittens to cops.

A bonus quote from the interview (Huh’s kind of an awesome nerd), when asked what he’ll be doing in five years: “Five years from now, scientists have predicted that cats will evolve thumbs, and then we’ll be serving them.”
