And mastering the VC game

I recommend mastering the VC game You should also check out the Union Square ventures blog. It is retired now but Fred posted great things for many years

Check out VC university or the venture deals online course, both courses are a great into to VC, and the venture deals course follows the book well. For the VC understand what stage they invest in, if they have any industry specialties or theses they follow. Read some blogs and newsletters to learn more about current tech trends, stratechery is good, TechCrunch, the verge, strictly VC or axios pro rata for daily deals download

The role described during the interview and job description is not even close to the work and lack of responsibility I actually have. I feel as if I was misled just so they could fill in a spot.

Lucky that we are same gender (which I do think impacts closeness), that we are close in age, and just clicked like bffs. Have since met so many sibs with non existent and toxic relationships. More kids = more expense. After passing on genes and getting love of a child, why have more than one
