A VC: Difficult Is Good

After reading a great article (Build Something People Need: On Raising Venture Capital And Creating Startups That Matter) about proper entrepreneurial focus on the FastCompany Blog by Rod Ebrahimi, it reminded me of another article (A VC: Difficult Is Good) by Fred Wilson that I had saved earlier this year and meant to write about before now.

Both of these articles touch on two essential characteristics of successful entrepreneurs...they focus on value to customers and work incredibly hard. When those two characteristics are coupled with talent and a dash of luck big things can result and, as an investor, that is the canoe I want to be in.
