  • and raising VC can be total stress. So, have fun while you can now, make friends, make people happy, embrace the chaos, build cool stuff, sing kumbaya, reap the benefits of raising social capital for as long as you possibly can and then and ONLY THEN<br /><br/>

  • This is most important. If you aren’t having fun, I have no idea why you are doing this. The more fun you have, the more people you will attract to what you are doing. Your goal should be to maximize the fun and minimize the stress.<br /><br/>
