Running a startup is like rowing a boat

In rowing, the enemy is the water.

It slows you down, but without it you can’t row.

In startups, water is cashflow.

You’re constantly battling for more, but without it you simply don’t have a business.

Cashflow is your enemy, but without it there is no such thing as business.

So embrace the water.

Love cashflow, the good and the bad.
