  1. So what you're saying is the right man in the wrong place makes all the difference in the world? 😉
    But half life aside in interesting speech, nice to know what the experience is thinking, i'm no entrepreneur but I see a lot of that natural talent you spoke of going to waste in the areas I reside, but good to hear someone down to earth talking about this.

  2. Gary, please, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, get educated on the talent argument. Stop with this shit man. PLEASE listen to the book The Talent Code on Audible (cause I know you won't read).

    We are hard wired to be able to learn anything. Those are the FACTS. Please stop telling young, impressionable kids that they just aren't born with the "talent" to be an entrepreneur. It can ABSOLUTELY be learned. The real issue you have is that they are not being taught the right way (which I agree with). But PLEASE, PLEASE stop spewing this hard-wired, natural-born talent bullshit. There isn't an entrepreneur gene. Evolution would be completely inefficient if that were the case.

    Please bro, PLEASE listen to that book on audio.

  3. i don't think any big investor would invest in artist … i can flip $1k to $100k in 1 year off my art alone. imagine what i could do with 10K ! but for now, just got 2 small investors hustling my ass off .

  4. You know what's the coolest thing in the world? That me, a 26 yr old, once failed but still aspiring entrepreneur from the buttfuck south of AFRICA, can watch these heavyweights nonchalantly talk about startups & investing. I love the internet and appreciate Gary massively for uploading this stuff. Much love from South Africa.

  5. Gary, if you're seeing $4M caps or priced rounds on idea stage deals, you're not getting good terms. Nothing should be pre-product at that number. Well… maybe bio-tech and nuclear fission.

  6. Haha you made me remember of the time me and my friend from junior high Dan, we used to get permission slips from our parents to walk to the gas station about 500m from our school to go get 12 packs of coke to sell to classmates for a buck. We even developed some competition from a kid who's father worked for FritoLays and was able to bring in Pepsi products. I almost thought I wasn't an entrepreneur and almost forgot my childhood. Thanks for reminding me Gary

  7. I'm 17 and have a clothing line. Creating the product, design and knowing how to market the brand isn't necessarily the difficult part however acquiring capital from investors is the real challenge.
