Money is abundant and meaningless. There are good founders with few relationships able to raise upwards of half a million as the first investment in ideas that seem impossibly difficult to monetize. With decent connections, you can pocket upwards of 10 million to start a company that seems hot.
Great post! Anybody who tries to tell you that "money isn't important" and that you shouldn't focus so much on it is usually a con artist trying to steal your money. You should be hostile towards those people.
