Succeed.

Man others here can give you lots of great advice.  I wish I could internalize it and move on like Auren Hoffman wisely suggests.  None of it worked for me.

For example.

I “made” $10m+ on paper in the Web 1.0 days in ’01.  And then “lost” almost all of it in the Dot Bomb crash less than 12 months later.

I pretended.  I pretended it was OK, that that was life.  But it hung over me for years and years and years.  That if only I’d just done this or that.

Then I sold my first start-up for $50m in ’04.  And I still hadn’t gotten back to where I was on paper, but at least, I had some liquidity.

I felt a lot better.

It took 4 years.
