I just got my round of funding and I am more terrified now that I have ever been. The expectations and risk of failure scares the shit out of me, but at the same time I can’t wait to see what happens.


  • Congratulations. Most of us are trying to get where you’re at, so you’re already ahead of a lot of us. I understand your concerns though, as now you’re playing with someone else’s money, which means that there’s more pressure on you to perform well.

    Good luck!

  • Congrats and don’t panic! Keep calm.. Deep breath in and out.. With a clear mind, make a realistic action plan, delegate stuff that you can.. course correct when you have you, with a beautiful vision at the horizon.

  • You might want to start meditating it has helped me to reign in my stress over founding and present myself in a better manner to people.

  • Sounds like a good recipe for success — fear, eagerness, money, and ambition!

    However, remember that a dollar spent is a dollar that must be earned — so don’t let your excitement trap you into overspending.

    And two, stay the course unless proven otherwise. Funding does not mean that you now have to go into 5 new directions. Stay excited, but concentrate.
