1/ Opportunity is a muscle that you work and develop over time. It starts small but grows as you take more and more risks.
"Raising money is about relationships. Build them early and often. Treat it like sales. Get people emotionally bought in" via @msuster
There's a warm seat in hell waiting for people at big companies that waste startups' time w/ no real intension to actually work w/ them.
7/ As @vkhosla would say: "The real risk is not becoming an entrepreneur" You can always get a job. But you can't always chase your dreams.
