Q: Any last words of advice for Founders starting a business?
A: Yes, if you are starting a business, don’t spend your time calling VCs; spend your time calling customers, figure out how to solve their problem and get them to pay for it.

An excerpt from C.S. Lewis‘ “Learning In War-Time” sermon

“Human life has always been lived on the edge of a precipice…If men had postponed the search for knowledge and beauty until they were secure, the search would never have begun…Life has never been normal.”

“Lost wealth may be replaced by industry,
Lost knowledge by study,
Lost health by temperance or medicine,
But lost time is gone forever.”
