Via A random blog: "The startup mentality. comes Why are there Serial Entrepreneurs?

'Being part of a start-up is about more than get-rich-quick dreams. It's an emotional commitment to a hurried, harried, adrenaline-driven way of working. For those who can cope, it seems oddly addictive.'

  • Gambler’s Fallacy.

  • I can’t work for big companies anymore.

  • It’s not the company, but the work.

  • Big companies are no longer hiring.

  • The valley is really one big company already

  • Start-ups are addictive.

I would add: It's not the work it's the people. There are a bunch of people whom I would easly work with again. There arealso a few people with whom I would not work with again for any reason (or maybe only for cash up front). Okay maybe I need a 12 step program?
