The Easy Part About the Hardest Part

by Larry Chiang on March 11, 2014

I went to Illinois. That. That was hard. Mr Ben had a co-founder who went to Illinois.
Lets get an easy fast start to the hard part of the hard parts. Here is a teaser followed by exact specifics:

Larry Chiang @ SXSW (@LarryChiang)
Spent a G
Or Three
@bhorowitz @Nas
not so fast
Cold call Ben
We’ll split it 100, minus 10*
See @duck9 blog 4 deets

Get it? 

/1/ you’re simply asking Ben for money
/2/ as an engineering undergrad versed in ENGR145’s Anchor Concept: Lemonade and Gua Gua Guacamole 
You’re doing Mr Ben a favor by cold calling. Remember, Ben’s business is driven by engineers. Engineers who are females or males and/or females
This hard part is OF COURSE MADE EASIER because of 27.5 of my blog posts. Start with “How to Close a Deal via Voicemail”
