What's up fellow stackers & builders. I wanted to share this video which I found useful personally for enhancing my communication about CASCDR.
- It aligns a lot with Brian Atchue's talk about emphazing the problem you're solving and clearly communicating it.
- @k00b 's post regarding what he wished he knew going into raising funds for a startup. He emphasized that you should have humility in admitting things you don't know instead of just trying to bluff really hard.
- I find you really need to change your communication depending on the audience. If you're speaking to the general public it's OK to be a bit more speculative (the degree to which you do depends on your personal style lol) . When it comes to VCs they appreciate it more if you get to brass tacks, explain your thought process & let them do the math on all the possibilities your business could unlock.
