⭐️ What Start-Up Founders Should Learn From the World’s Best Poker Player (Feliks Eyser)


Our two-cents on Eyser’s article

Eyser instructs founders to assemble their own version of ‘The Avengers’ (non-Marvel fans: that’s code for a diverse team of skilled advisors). The power in having a trusted, reliable group of peers and mentors cannot be overstated. When leading a growing company, it becomes difficult to find the time and resources necessary to learn everything completely on your own, and that’s when you call in the experts for advice. Spend the time forming a brain trust before you need the help. You don’t have to be Thor or Iron Man to ‘win’ — it just might benefit to know them.” – Dylan G.
