Make Things, Not Capital Expenditures

Andre Torrez -

A rough recounting of what I wanted:
  1. Make money (duh)
  2. Like and respect the people I work with
  3. Really enjoy my day and feel like I got something done
  4. No pointless meetings
  5. Making something I'm proud of
I follow a few VCs on Twitter and have talked to even fewer in person. While they have all been extremely kind, thoughtful, and blindingly smart, I came away from any those interactions thinking "I don't see their money benefiting me for anything I want to do" and so I haven't pursued that route any further.
