At Tiny, I've hired CEOs for 60+ companies and interviewed hundreds of others. After over a decade of trial and error (and I mean BIG errors), here’s our hiring process:

Give me your best trade ideas: Inflation hedges that you can buy right now on the public market. Could be stock, options, bonds, whatever.

Synergy is like communism. It sounds like a good idea until you try it.

Ditto. @ramit's original book was the catalyst for me to start thinking about compounding, negotiation, and and focusing my energy on generating more money instead of saving on lattes. https://t.co/zZGEDJqmM3

You can have the best design in the world. The best product. The most innovative features. But if your copywriting sucks...you suck. It's like having the world's best restaurant with a moldy, unreadable sign and front door that opens the wrong way...

Has anyone copied the Costco model for restaurants? Food sold at cost. Employees paid well. Memberships = profit.

Idea: A copywriting agency that focuses 100% on Twitter. Send them notes/a story, they craft it into a hooky Twitter thread. Is this dumb? What would you pay per tweet thread?

There's one home product that is always so insanely expensive that it makes me want to hurl: Drapes. Why do they cost so much and take so long to install? Who is disrupting this? Just got quoted $20k for simple white drapes in a room in our office.

A simple insight that sounds depressing but makes life a lot easier in the long run: Never expect people to change. In your romantic, personal, and work life. Most people generally continue their pattern of behaviour...

Something I’ve learned after almost twenty years in business: Behind the scenes, every company is an unmitigated hair on fire disaster at most times.

We recently applied for a business license for a new business we are starting in Vancouver. Today, I received a call from the City of Vancouver: a very friendly man asked us to come in to have a business license review meeting.

PSA: 10x revenue is NOT the typical multiple for tech companies. I'm sorry but your micro-SaaS tool with flat growth doing $40K/year revenue is not worth $400K+

Buffett & Munger passed on several deals that turned the would-be buyers into billionaires. One of those deals: Detroit International Bridge ("DIB") DIB's Ambassador Bridge: - Connects Detroit / Windsor. - Handles 30K crossings a day. - Enables 25% of US-CA trade. https://t.co/sIOaR0CL9M

After reviewing thousands of small private businesses, I can confidently say that the world is awash in accidental non-profits, some of which pay a lot in taxes.

My napkin calculations estimate @ycombinator's DPI (distributed to paid in capital ratio) for their 2005 - 2013 vintages at ~320x. That’s a 31,900% fund-level return. In cash terms, they turned ~$11.2m of invested capital into ~$3.6B. Here's a rundown of the numbers:

Microsoft long ago figured out that the secret to succeeding in Enterprise software is making CIOs & CTOs happy, not end users. The so-called consumerization of IT was a side show. https://t.co/0c7HaVzegG

Two mediocre students did everything wrong while taking $10,000 in credit card debt and turning it into a $67 BILLION company. The crazy part? They were profitable from day 1. This is the wild story 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

This is why crowdfunding is very risky for those taking part in it. I invested a small $ in Backstage Capital, and I thought that most of that investment will go directly to underrepresented founders. Turns out, a good part of that $5M raised did end up there. The fine print... https://t.co/2mrrfOTbsc

Adam Neumann is the cofounder of a company called Flowcarbon that just raised $70M. This is the opening slide in their deck that describes what they do. You guys, they are selling something called the Goddess Nature Token. $70M. This is not a shitpost. https://t.co/NPM2E2nkMx

What I thought would make me happy: • Nice car • House • Fancy watch • Expensive clothes What actually makes me happy: • Free time • Quiet walks • Free writing • Whiskey on the deck • Country music on a sunny day Find what *actually* makes you happy—then prioritize it.
