Ode to Ideas


It all starts with an idea.

You see something wrong, something that everyone suffers with regularly, and all of a sudden inspiration strikes like a thunderbolt out of the sky and you can see how it could be done so much better.

You work like crazy nights and weekends to refine your solution.

Then you launch it and the public is so grateful that they line up around the block to get their hands on it and tell all their friends to go buy it.

Techcrunch salutes you and declares you a genius.

Google, Apple and General Electric go into a bidding war to acquire your company.

You retire rich at age 25 and become a VC just to fill your free time.
