by Larry Chiang on March 6, 2015

Larry Chiang’s 5th book, What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School, launched after a Harvard Law School keynote on the New York Fashion Week runway 09-09-2009. He knows how to sniff out grand openings and crashed them with his dog Baxter. As CEO of Duck9, he spearheads to effort to get college consumers get a FICO over 750. Post H.L.S. keynote, Harvard Business wrote: “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School” (his latest post was done #shirtless as a yogi who “Sets an intention for SXSW“.

NY Fashion Week has supermodels getting a high FICO credit score because I supermodel on-the-side

I wanted to call this post, “The Most Significant Silicon Valley Blog Post” cuz it is. Bear with me…


You see as a supermodel, I take legendary selfies. But is there a cultural backlash to taking selfies? 



Selfie while moderating the 2008 panel, VC Secrets. (It’s the prequel to #ReverseVC)


So I DJd my supermodel skills with  entrepreneur brain and came up with “#SelfieNoSelf”. This is my vanguard entrepreneur that may sourpuss my earlier genius entrepreneur works

– Cross the Chasm from the Right(CTCFTR)

– The Fifth Epiphany (which is CTCFTR lol)

‘Selfie, no-self’ knowledge activates “non employee co-founder”. It’s something all the elite know but never verbalize because we are too busy

– teaching a class

– banging

– guest lecturing at MIT

– spending money

– renovating our house that has 5 random founders living in it

– vacationing 8-12 weeks per year

– speaking at #OFGPFSE

– long weekends every weekend

– working from home 2 days per week

WELL, I live in a dorm room, work 6 days/week, have zero life and bang 1.05 girl(s) per year. 


This is my explosion of work. You’re welcome!!!

I’m ‘non employee co-founder’ of the “TC #afterparty” Original #SelfieNoSelf…

My most pivotal lectures are when I abdicate the lectern.

It’s like a #selfieNoSelf

Notice that I placed an audience member on to this VC panel

Notice Carly Spoljaric. I crashed an audience member on to my VC panel because she contributed so well from the audience. She was at First Round Capital. This can be seen as the derivation of “selfie no self” with foundation abdicating a live panel to take a selfie. I took the genius of my early work and simply removed myself.
