Look at me being all grown up and calling myself old. I had a few other titles that I was considering for this and it was a close contest. But I finally decided that I’m comfortable calling myself old (relatively speaking!). In terms of tech startup founders’ age, I’m definitely on the older side. The alternative titles I had in mind were –
- A letter to my 24 year old self (from the future 34 year old self)
- Yo 24 year old founder, stop being cocky for a minute and listen up
I fondly remember being a cocky 24 year old, so don’t be offended if you are one right now. You’ll grow up too!
Onwards with the advices / rules / lessons then, in no particular order –
