4/8/2019
More
When we think about "startup exits" we think about "millions and billions". But how life-changing could an exit of as "little" as $250,000 be? A lot more than you might think, which is important because most people are far more likely to get to a $250k exit than millions or billions. Wil and Ryan unpack exactly how $250k could fundamentally change your life and how trying to get to that milestone first could be a more achievable and powerful goal than holding out for the big Willy Wonka...

Stop Comparing Yourself to Other Startups

3/11/2019
More
Many of us play a horrible game of comparison, whereby we compare ourselves to other Founders, other startups, and if we're (un)lucky, the press and social media barrage we see of other people's success.
