Don’t be an Entrepreneur

Image source

What type of businessman are you? Hopefully not an entrepreneur…

When they succeed, they succeed big, usually by sheer luck and number of attempts. But just like the gambler, you only hear about that one big win. You never hear of the many losses that, in balance, make the entrepreneur the worst risk to bet your money on. Entrepreneurs are the business world’s big gamblers.

Women in Technology

Who are the role models out there for women looking to get into technology…

The reason why girls are not getting involved in tech is because they are told "be perfect or don’t try" by the same noisy people who claim to be advocating for them. There are some bright spots in this whole mess— Girls in Tech does great work, as does Girl Developer IT— but most of the self appointed shepherds spend too much time deflecting attention away from imperfect women succeeding in tech and waiting for their geek messiah to appear and prove once and for all that we belong here too.

Philadelphia Syndrome

Image source

In search of a cure…

The only way to fight Philadelphia Syndrome is to put our heads down and create something great. Forget New York. Forget LA. Whether its an innovative school, a new way to work, or what we’re doing with Devnuts, don’t stop until people start noticing. Stop whining. For God’s sake stop whining. Stop talking about what you’re doing and just do it. Once that happens, Philadelphia will start to be known as a place where things are happening and not a place where things might happen.

The reality is, cities are like women. You’re attracted to the ones that don’t need you. New York doesn’t need you, it’s the center of the universe. LA is where movie stars live, you’re not worthy. Philadelphia begs for you to like them. Remember we’ve got such great art! Almost all cities have great art. That’s not a reason to live here.

How to Negotiate

Image source

An analysis of how not to negotiate (i.e. Pawn Stars) and tools that you can use:

As noted in Monopoly, there are three skills which are vital to the success of every startup: (i) selling, (ii)networking and, (iii) negotiating. In addition, an entrepreneur’s two most valuable assets are time and money. Thus, judicious Frugality is vital, irrespective of the amount of money a startup has in the bank. Thus, even though pawn store negotiations are atypical of the type you will encounter operating your startup, studying them does yield some valuable lessons, such as:

JV vs. Varsity - The Pawn Stars have a huge home field advantage. They buy and sell items all day, every day. The typical seller might sell a handful of items to a pawn shop in their lifetime. As such, the Pawn Star negotiators are professionals, while the Rubes are rank amateurs.

The paradigm is similar to the relationship of Venture Capitalists (VCs) and entrepreneurs during the fundraising process. The most prolific, serial entrepreneur might raise money from a VC a dozen or so times over their entire careers. Conversely, an experienced VC can easily craft hundreds of fundraising transactions over their professional tenure. This experience puts them at a tremendous advantage, which is why entrepreneurs should offset this experience deficit by relying on battle-tested startup lawyers, as discussed more fully in Roping In The Legal Eagles.
