All of them? Who's actually doing the work?

Most startups fail. It's a gold rush that has passed. You're better off selling picks and shovels (ie. be a high prices contractor).

So you're an idiot, got it.

i feel the same way. i invested heavily in building a business that sold a saas solution and after three years, realized it was all bullshit and i was wasting my time. it is what it is.

If you didn't get lots of shares in that startup, I agree probably yeah you wasted alot of time.

...So what? Does it make them better persons than you are ? People care too much about titles and ranks in society, especially that it doesn't even show your real genius (example: Einstein was a patent clerc at 28)
Anonymous #7:
keep us update on your next startup. ...If you learnt from your failures that is. ;)
Anonymous #1:
@#7, so true... The problem is, the people with titles are getting the compensation and perks.

Been at startups for the past 7 years and have experienced company instability, pivots, re-orgs, and mass firings. All the while having to endure terrible rhetoric about how we're changing the world because I wear 10 hats instead of 1 or 2. Next job is going to be some boring big corp with stability where I can coast.
