Hey, thanks for this one! There is another exercise that comes down to 20-minute writing sessions.
In a nutshell, you just block all distractions, set the timer to 20 minutes, and start writing down whatever comes to your mind, as fast as you can. Chances are you’ll end up with some weird stream-of-consciousness stuff, but the process feels rewarding.
On June 26, 2008, our friend Michael Seibel introduced us to 7 prominent investors in Silicon Valley. We were attempting to raise $150,000 at a $1.5M valuation. That means for $150,000 you could have bought 10% of Airbnb. Below you will see 5 rejections. The other 2 did not reply.
