This blog will always be less than 1000 characters, which is just a bit more than Twitter and much more interesting.
In various corporate roles and as a start-up founder I have always found it was very difficult to raise money. Same as a VC fund founder. It requires patience (a lot of it), determination for an uncertain outcome, and puts a lot of strain on you constantly juggling the ups and downs that a YES or a NO inevitably triggers on someone’s self. Similarly, when summer is approaching and appearance matters we/you/I embark on a weight loss program. It is equally difficult, requires the same determination, and brings you the ups and downs of a fundraising process every morning when you watch the scale. I found those 2 things the most difficult things in my personal and professional life.
