Citations
"One thing I learned in '97, when I thought the right time to found a company was during a swing-up, is that it's much better to start during an economic downturn. Partnerships are easier; hiring is easier; and the competition starts later."

"Try to get as much intelligence as you can from your network on both the entrepreneurial process and the specifics of the business that you're thinking about. The network is not just the people you know -- it's who your network knows. Iterate constantly."

"A networker likes to meet people. I don't. I like accomplishing things in the world. You meet people when you want to accomplish something."
