    Interesting read.

    There is a flip side with VC investment, but entrepreneurs should go into it with their eyes wide open. There are plenty of horror stories out there for them to read.

    I guess it comes down to whether or not you need the investment badly enough to be willing lose the control and have all the other hassles that come with the money.

    For me, I suspect I’d hate life under a VC. Im sure their money and input would help to really grwo the business. But it’s not a trade-off I’m willing to make at the moment.
