I’ve been talking to a bunch of people recently about investment, taking money, and some misperceptions about why (and how) money was put together for the projects I’ve worked on.
While some more of those conversations will begin to surface here in the near future, I wanted to share a short quip (and to break the month-long dry spell that has been this blog).
I’m honestly not 100% sure where I heard this first, but I know I’ve heard it from more than one person and I think Josh Kopelman was the first person I heard say it out loud:
“If you’re looking for advice, ask for money. If you’re looking for money, ask for advice”.
Both are valuable assets, advice and cash. Which do you need first, or more importantly, which do you need now?
Something worth chewing on when the first thing you’re looking around for is someone with deep pockets to get your idea off the ground.
