Finances or purpose?

Your article resonates, and perhaps this point is intentionally hyperbolic, but I would caution against taking it literally. It’s difficult to focus on execution when you’re carrying a great deal of personal financial risk. This is one reason savvy investors try to take day-to-day financial stresses out of the equation (for example, by ensuring the team has a living wage).

I would reframe your question: have the entrepreneurs invested their life’s purpose in this venture, such that their commitment is unquestionable?

Thanks for a great post.
