Pando: A good problem to have: Andy Dunn and Phil Libin talk about the difficult decision to fire themselves
At the beginning of your company when you are always a couple of months away from going out of business and every crisis is an existential crisis, because all you’re trying to do is optimize for staying alive. That is the happiest and simplest time in your company… everything else is in the good problem to have category, which is like “Good news, you’re kind of successful that’s why you’re having it. Bad news is it’s more stressful than anything else before.” &! As a founder your instinct is to put something new in the world... you start a company because you are irreverent. You start a company because you want to create something out of nowhere, and the paradox is that if you are successful with that, and then a job evolves from an act of creativity and irreverence. Focus and execution and scaling become equally important as [creativity and irreverence]. You have to ask yourself am I a fit for what the job requires?
