The easiest way to get a venture capitalist out of his bunker is to ask for help on a project, not ask for money.

Seek out and capitalize on as many time-saving technology advances and techniques as you can.
Continually adapt your focus and develop a technology toolset to help, not hinder you.
History repeats itself, because people don’t often change; they just become more entrenched in their ways.
Naked, not veiled, agendas will turbo-boost your productivity and efficiency.
Too often, effective ideas get rejected because they have to travel too far in an organization filled with fiefdoms and inevitable roadblocks.
What is required to catch the attention of colleagues or clients is the ability to communicate clearly, concisely, and to the point.
A little bit of simplicity and a whole lot of creativity can cut right through those attention-deficit barriers.
Stay on top of the technology of time management.
A term sheet is like a prenuptial agreement and a coach’s playbook. Spend the time to understand the plays, and what happens should you ever separate from the business.
