A Hack For Knowledge & Growth

Hi everyone,

Over the past year, I’ve talked to over 200 founders and entrepreneurs and learned that they’ve all faced similar challenges at different stages of their business & careers. Some of the most common questions and comments that I’ve heard included:

  • I feel overwhelmed. How do I prioritize what I need to do to move ahead?

  • How do you structure a team when you have zero experience at it?

  • I’m currently bootstrapping a startup. Can you give me advice on how to raise funding successfully?

  • How do you design a go-to-market strategy on a super tight budget?

  • I’m wearing way too many hats. How can I delegate some of my responsibilities?

  • What are your tips for managing and overcoming burnout?

If any of these resonate, don’t panic. Most of us have been there at least once. The first thing to do is face the brutal truth: you can’t do everything alone, and you shouldn’t. Even if the answer lies in you –and that’s just the best-case scenario– talking it out with someone neutral and knowledgeable in the subject is the most reliable way to find your next step. And that someone is a mentor.

As an entrepreneur, mentor, investor, and former founder and YCombinator alumni (alongside Airbnb, Dropbox, and Reddit), I’ve had my share of questions like these. I count myself fortunate that I was able to find a mentor early on in my career.

Today, luckily, online mentoring platforms allow entrepreneurs to connect with specialized mentors and advisors online for low fees or even for free.

You can find out more on a personal blog post I recently wrote about the hack that changed my career. I wrote to help entrepreneurs begin their mentorship journey and find the right platform to push their business and career forward.

Regardless, feel free to send me any feedback, questions, or suggestions.
