Lately I have been getting a good amount of solicitations from founders asking if I will cofound / invest / advise / product manage / guide or whatever it is a startup needs. This is inevitable as we all learn and progress and teach the trade to those earlier on the learning curve though I wanted to point something out:
Founders, please don't bullshit me.
I was once you. I know more, have been through more and know what its like to make things connect. That said if you want me to cofound / invest / advise / product manage / guide or whatever it is a startup needs, start with being honest and just say what you need.
I help honest people who don't waste my time.
Below are some pictures of me when I had no idea what I was doing too...
