What to Do with Too Much Advice - Aaron Harris
"Make for yourself a Rav (a teacher); acquire for yourself a friend; and judge every person on the positive side" - Pirkei Avot
We recently announced the launch of a new version of Startup School. As part of that, we created a library of the best advice we've written and created in the past. This is a powerful collection, and it got me thinking about the nature of advice. Specifically, it made me consider an issue that frequently confronts founders: what to do with too much advice.
At first glance, this would seem to be an unlikely problem. Ten years ago, there wasn't much high quality advice available for starting a startup. There were some great essays from Paul Graham and from Marc Andreessen and then there was quite a lot of bad advice. Most founders' access to in person advice was even sparser. There simply weren't enough people around who had recently started companies or advised early stage startups to give a founder easy access to someone experienced.
The rapid expansion of the early startup funding ecosystem has changed this dynamic. There are now hundreds, probably thousands, of people with at least some experience in startups. Most of these people are willing to help/advise some number of the people who ask. This is a blessing and a curse.
