Quick and Dirty Guide to Starting Up

The folks at Venture Hacks just updated their 35 slide presentation A quick and dirty guide to starting up. There's some great stuff here and it doesn't take long to click through. I recommend it for anyone interested in entrepreneurship or starting their own company.

One of the slides has the following Hugh Macleod quote. Not sure I agree or even think it's relevant to entrepreneurship but I found it provocative:

The price of being a wolf is loneliness. The price of being a sheep is boredom. Choose one or the other with great care.

  • Thanks for the link and thanks for reading!

    I think the quote from Hugh Macleod is supposed to be interpreted as wolf=entrepreneur, sheep=not.

  • I think we understand the meaning of the quote, but find the view skewed. It attempts to bring insight, but it really does not. Hugh is just a sheep hater.

  • Reminds me of Chris Rock’s routine where he says you can be single and lonely or married and bored. Like a lot of what Hugh says, worth thinking hard about, not necessarily to be taken literally.
