Like most addictions, the hardest thing is to admit to the addiction and then look for medication, counselling or an alternative path.
So, I have found the inner belief and confidence to admit to my issues.
I am a recovering equity angel investor. Thankfully, I have found tokenomics and tokens and am in a sustained period of recovery, and I am confident that I will not return to my past habits.
I have suffered with the equity illness both as an investor and as a founderlooking to raise capital. You might wonder what are the symptoms?
Let’s start with my investor hat on:
Now with my founders’ hat on:
There are many other symptoms, but for the others out there, these may help you recognise the illness and come to terms with it.
I had much counselling, many discussions, made a lot of research and saw a way out. I came across a thing called a token. I am in the recovery phase.
I have recovered to a level where I am no longer an investor, but a contributor. It feels better. Why?
Now looking as, a founder who is looking for funds to build a business, a token feels better
My medicine is working, I feel good. I have reignited energy and passion. I am sure it will take a few more years to use the American term I hate ’find closure ‘ on my past illness while I wait for the trade sales or IPO’s.
I would recommend anyone who sees signs of the illness to look at the indicators, see if you can take the step forward and take the token medicine.
PLEASE DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH, BUT DO NOT JUST LISTEN TO THE TOKEN DOOMSDAY BRIGADE. AS I KEEP SEEING ON VIDEOS ‘SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE’
Please also not the tongue in cheek nature, I am very happy with the equity investment I have generally and would not want any of the founders I have invested in to read this is the wrong way!!
