Journal #9 : Reaching Out

Being a first time entrepreneur can be really frustrating (challenging). But excess to resource, advice and capital seems to be easier now. Angels have been replying my mails. I really didn’t expect them to reply them at all. I always thought “They have hundreds of emails a day, Why answer mine?”. But they did. And I would like to give credit to the entrepreneurs and angels that have replied my mails.

  1. Brett from RentMonitor
  2. Natty from Everlater
  3. Nicole Glaros of TechStars (her blog)
  4. Andrew Warner of Mixergy
  5. David Tisch of TechStar NYC
  6. Leah Culver of Convore
  7. Nivi of Venturehacks
  8. and not forgetting Megan of MeganLeighSweeney.com

It’s an awesome feeling to have those mail replied. They are super nice if you are super nice. I know that I am a virgin entrepreneur, but what I have learnt so far is, to reach out to as many people as possible. Introduce yourself, do not ask for money, advice is worth more in time, follow up with less annoying but genuine updates and always do your homework before reaching out.
