  • Why do people not take into account the opportunity costs? What if Guy has to spends 3-4 years doing this while turning down offer to be CEO at some hot startup and startup goes IPO while treumors goes nowhere?

  • While a great point is that it costs almost nothing to start a web business these days, one important 'cost' that is not included (and is a key reason people even know about Truemors) is the fact that Guy Kawasaki is the founder and head pitch person -- I would call that... 'priceless'.

  • At that cost, a high risk doesn't really matter, these are small bets.
