I love startups. I hate the startup scene. Founders are more interested in playing startup than actually being one. Below are some of the most common behaviours of founders and teams that are more concerned with acting like a business than being one. 1) Meetings, meetings and more meetings - "I'm in a meeting," feels very nice to say, but are you getting stuff done? 2) Having multiple people doing a job that one person can do - You don't need a team to do your social media, one scrappy content marketer is enough. 3) Worshipping vanity benchmarks - Number of employees is not a benchmark to measure success by. 4) Spending a lot of time at meetups - Networking feels like work, but what other work are you trading off to do it? 5) Overspending on shwag, office space and business cards. 6) Having more conversations with people outside of your market than people in it.
