Two years after starting we just turned down a term-sheet that would return the investors 3x their money and would double my net worth. This is my 3rd startup: first one got a decent exit after 6 years (3x ROI for investors), second one is still going.
Everyone thinks we have great prospects (4-5x the term-sheet), but I am terrified. Growing this thing is daunting, and I am afraid that this bubble is going to burst soon and I will end up in another 6 year marathon. It never gets easier, no matter what people say.
