Top 3 Value Bombs:

1. Your slice of the pie may not be as big when you go partner with venture capital, but you've got a whole group of very talented, passionate people that are now on your side that can help you open doors and help grow the right team.

2. People who invest in your company are not investing so you can pay yourself a 7-figure salary. People invest in your company to make sure it grows the right way, invests its money the right way, pays its people the right dollar amount... and a glorious salary won’t be one of those things.

3. All cash is not equal. You have to find the right investors who share in your vision. You want to celebrate with them when things are great; and when you fall on tough times, you all have to stay aligned and be able to have those tough conversations when they come up.
