A couple of years ago, I was at a holiday party. One of the hosts told me about another guest at that party who was starting a company and mentioned that I should talk to him.
I love startups. I love anyone willing to go on that journey. So from the gate, I already want to do anything I can to help him out. When I eventually ran into him, we started chatting.
He started pitching me his idea, and he spoke for 30, maybe 45, minutes. Finally, he paused to take his first breath. I told him I thought his business idea was really cool, which it is. Then I asked him, “How many users do you have?”
