... and hold onto your equity as long as you can

Drew Curtis, who founded Fark way back in 1999, says that when he first thought of taking money two years later, "everyone was busy being bankrupt," so he kept the company self-funded.

The lesson that taught him? "Hold onto your equity as long as you can," he says, before quickly adding, "but I'm from Kentucky, so what do I know."

You can hear more of his one-liners in this interview, and in another we're set to roll out next week. 

Curtis' self-deprecating humor belies the fact that the aggregation site for strange, humorous and satirical news is wildly successful, generating more than 50 million page views per month from 4 million unique visitors.
