on what coaching founders through VC pitches has taught me about living with integrity
Really enjoyed your post, Dr. Gorlin!
This especially resonated: "judging whether a given investor is right for you and your company [by representing yourself and your company as accurately as you can] is as or more important than convincing them to fund you."
(Applies by analogy to so many life situations, as well!)
It took me a bit of reading to recognize "VC" as venture capitalist. Be cautious about your specialized knowledge.
