Startup Advice for Picking Co-founders

And, we had a crazy conversation really early on which I think a lot of people miss out on, and I think this is actually something that we lucked out with because we have a lot of work experience. And we sat down and talked about what was important to us. So I think one of the things that happens in a lot of startups is not only maybe two people are too similar and they don’t have complementary skills, but they’re actually aimed at different things. Core values? Exactly. If one person wants to buy an island and the other person wants to save the world those two things are going to get you to a position where you have to make a decision and your core values are not aligned. And that’s when people really clash. And so, we had this, this, this was actually one of the ways we knew we could be super honest with one another because we said, well, what are your goals? And what’s important to you about what we’re doing and how we’re doing it? And who we’re doing it for. And you know, you know where you draw the line with different decisions. And we did that early on and I wouldn’t replace that for anything. You know, if she had said “I want to be the richest person in the world.” I’d be like, well, that’s great, I’d don’t know, I mean I don’t want, I want to do well, this is not a charity, but at the same time, I want to be able to make decisions along a similar axis of values.
