I’m stealing this phrase from something I heard on YC’s latest podcast with Casey Neistat and Matt Hackett. But it’s also something that randomly came across another conversation I was having with someone earlier today.
This is especially true for any entrepreneur that needs more than a few hundred thousand dollars to get to their first customers. (Read: hardware, medical devices, agriculture, etc.) Whether you realize it or not, you’re competing with every other entrepreneur outside your industry.
If you’re boring. If you’re unrelatable. If you’re overly focused on product rather than growth. You’re not getting the second meeting and it’s time to recognize that the problem is you.
