Patience through the enjoyment of DOING
But I do have concern for the PEOPLE involved. I see a ton of entrepreneurs who believe the meteoric rise of twitter, facebook, groupon, etc is the NORMAL WAY to build a business. They NEED funds yesterday. They NEED a B round tomorrow. They NEED 500k users by Christmas. They’re wrong. What they need is a business model that doesn’t need exponential growth and a ton of infused capital to succeed. They need to go through the years of sitting down and figuring shit out because they can’t afford to hire someone else to do it. They need to EARN and BUILD relationships that are built as much on risk and respect as on potential reward.
