The Missing Chapter in Startup Advice (that will make or break you)

Published on

Making the Entrepreneur State of Mind (I like calling it the Crushing-It State of Mind) a priority can be the difference between making or breaking your company (and yourself).

When I switched industries from the hedge fund world to the startup world 3 years ago, I manically consumed every bit of startup advice I could find. It payed of work-wise...but along the way I realized there was a very important missing chapter in startup advice.

These slides will show you what I was lucky enough to learn the hard way. Being aware of these things, making them a priority, isn't a privilege but a responsibility for anyone committed to success and a "rich" life.
