little things

Founders life is different from media or news channels fundraising announcements. 90% of startups fail. No one cares about those founders. The founder’s life is about dealing with rejections gracefully.
A teammate will fight and leave.
A customer demo will go haywire.
An investor will tell you all the wrong things you are building.

It is like fighting a war every day. In all this misery and pessimism, we remember that little encouragement. It stays for eternity. We know who got us a first cheque, who vouched for us in closing sales, or who was our evangelist. These little things stay forever.

I know we are living in a non-idealistic world where capitalism and fame act as oxygen.
