We started howies in 1995.
We got our first salary cheque in 2001.
I am not saying those 6 years were easy.
But I am saying that it bought us time to get good at it.
We started The Do Lectures in 2008.
We are yet to take a salary.
I am not saying the last decade has been easy.
But I am saying that it has bought us time to get good at it.
Raising money can be a good thing.
Or a bad thing.
But it is better to learn when you are paying.
Own your mistakes.
Get to fighting weight.
Hone your skills.
Raising money is easy.
Knowing how to spend it is hard.
