Looking for a mentor: Leland. Ran into casually. Probably scared him off with the fact I’m in investing. Has no idea I’m good. Although on positive side, maybe asks around about me.
Trying to fund entrepreneurs: overeager. But more importantly, sharing a bunch of stuff…comes across as trying to tell them what to do. Is that someone they’d like to work with?
They’re going to do all the work so show that you’re just supportive… potentially funding source. Want folks to come to you not the other way around?
