I just read your post titled “Idiot CEOs” and enjoyed it. I am CEO of my first venture and trying to avoid VC like the plague by creating intelligent partnerships.


We just went through a lot of what you wrote about — and in the end decided on a different path for funding because it didn’t make any sense.


Painful to read for me, but a Great article — I only wish you’d had sent this to me in 1997.

Read George’s article, it’s a good one.
