Fundraising and trying to keep your investors on the same wavelength is difficult. Having to constantly resell your idea to investors, employee and customers is also tough. Watching a deal die five times before you get it to happen....that's loads of fun....
Rewarding is watching the company you created give jobs and opportunities to people, and watching those people grow with it. Creating wealth for people is always terrific
They don't get enough money. They don't try to account for what they can't anticipate.
1.) Whatever money you plan to raise, double it.
2.) Be the BEST partner you can be to everyone you work with. Understand what they want out of the relationship and go out of your way to give it to them.
3.) Don't put off tough decisions.
