Startups Anonymous: The startup world is one big hoax | PandoDaily
[ Could have come out of the mouth of David Heinemeier Hansson - @dhh - See intrvws on ThisWeekInStartups bit.ly/ZheCPA !!! ] Ultimately, if in the end you still want to be in startup land, stay away from these crowds and the big hoax. I promise it’s depressing and not worth your energy. Focus on your customers and your business. Don’t worry about raising money and just worry about generating revenue. Hanging out with other entrepreneurs or so called investors or VCs isn’t going to make you a better entrepreneur. Go and hang out with your family and friends. They are the better judge as they will bring you practical advice that’s more holistic to your well being then the regurgitated flavor of the day. And if you made it and your business is really making it, then pay it forward by not surrounding yourself with the pack of wash ups. Instead stay away from that group and mentor sparingly; maybe to students in high school or college during career day. And remind them of the big hoax.

▶ Marc Ecko Interview at The Breakfast Club Power 105.1 - YouTube
Marc Ecko - legacy over money. + Perception is perception, it's not reality. How are you perceived, your brand. Focus on what you are good at (Talent), and do that well (+Hustle). And then later comes the Hustle, even more so + harder work, if you want to go beyond that. ... "Kanye! You don't need those gatekeepers. [...] Don't let your product be defined by a certain price point [by those gatekeepers]. [...] Don't try to imagine your future in a straight line. [...] Hubris can kill yourself. Don't get high on your own supply. [Stay Humble, authentic, down to earth, stay true to yourself.]" [...] "Nike makes an event out of a product." + v=k3SIkVIj7TQ "Perfect is the Enemy of Great. Constrains drive Creativity. Pro/Am Picture." [...] "Public Perception (and ur perception) is not Reality. [...] Problem of being disconnected. Swing ur dick without being a dick. Be intellectually honest" + http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Marc+Ecko+Unlabel+Selling+you+without+selling+out&sm=3
