Can I skip the first boring preview paragraph and lead you directly to the meat? Because I am sure you got an idea of what I am going to talk about from the title.
Chase Passion, Not Money
Wake up Sam. Without the potential of making money your passion is as good as your morning walk. Good for you, and ignorable for the rest of the world.
Yes of course, there are businesses built 100% around passion, but then they stay small, like mom & pop shops.
Startup world is all about scale & money.
VC’s often speaks up about large markets. Here it is to understand that VCs aren’t chasing the large market size to showcase your passion at large, but to make huge money. Also, talking money isn’t bad at all. It’s the fuel. It’s energy. Sometimes money can even show you your passion (Ouch… debatable).
