Urban Legends Should Not Be Your Mentor

by Larry Chiang on January 6, 2015

Mentorship is fascinating. I get to go to pro games just because I count mentor mentions per press interview! It’s curated under #MMPPI. 
MMPPI is Mentor Mentions Per Press Interview. 
The underbelly of mentorship is a concept of “default mentorship”. It’s when we casually hear of something and then accidentally remember it. We don’t necessarily trust the source. Heck, often we do not even remember who whispered the gossip. 
This is an example of “default mentorship”.

Get default mentored by “urban legends”…

“Default mentors in the credit industry have little or no awareness of FCRA.”

–Larry Chiang 
Knowledge activating “Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)” has benefits in entrepreneurship

Controlling credit is controlling 200x the M1 money supply #PRPRPI

In America, you give alpha males and beta males your #, they say thank you

In Europe and Asia they think my neighboring country is evil

Entrepreneurship curation is my hobby. 

FICO score preparation is my job. 

CEO of Duck9, Larry (@6502838008)
I will never escalate my “hobby” (I was mentored to never join the circus)


Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
CS majors can advocate and promote Uber, Amex and Guardsmen in a way they cannot

Distribute the knowledge of “Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)” has benefits for your entrepreneurship PRACTICE

THE idea is to find an advantage, get a mentor (me) and take a small, small amount of action

/1/ get a stamp and tag me on fB #POBox105281

CEO of Duck9, Larry (@6502838008)
Yup, @LarryChiang got his CS majors doing FICO preparation.

SERIOUSLY, get a stamp and tag me on fB  (#POBox105281 isnt on Instagram)

/3/ default mentorship of FICO occurs at YC too. 

Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
It’ll take 29 days to 10 years for the PDF “#POBox105281” to take root and get knowledge propagated within YC

/4/ Default mentorship is in contrast with three other categories of mentorship. 

– Superstar mentor
– Cohort mentor
– Junior mentor
My credit mentor is Gerri Detweiler is a superstar.
