Your past successes won’t predict your future. Nor will your failures. Each business startup has it’s own unique circumstances. Customers are different. Markets are different. The economy changes.
Experience can open doors. Previous success get’s the first meeting. Failure teaches valuable things.
But you still have to do the hard work. The business model has to be fundable. The numbers still have to make sense.
So show up 45 minutes early and stay 15 minutes late. Get on with it!
