The Truth Behind Tech Start-ups with Dan Lyons

The Truth Behind Tech Start-ups with Dan Lyons:

Dan Lyons, ex-Forbes, former pseudonymous blogger of the Fake Steve Jobs blog? Remember the Fake Steve Jobs blog? I remember. It was fun, I’d even dare say I was a fan.

In this RSA talk I see why he left Hubspot after only about nine months. He just wasn’t a cultural fit. He tells his story in an enjoyable & engaging way though. And I still say that’s Dan’s superpower. He’s an engaging, effective, and funny storyteller. I’m still a fan.

Even though I don’t have any idea where Dan writes nowadays. Maybe he’s retired? I dunno, gonna search maybe…

The life of a startup founder is not for everyone. Prospective founders should understand the realities of startup life and do a gut check before jumping in.

Good startup business advice in this article.
