Stay away from visionaries
January, 01 2013
If you ever meet a visionary, walk away. The self appointed visionary does not posses the ability to realize their own vision. In spite of this, they still consider themselves the brains behind the operation. They'll seek out anybody who can edit their own Facebook profile to help them with their groundbreaking idea. Groundbreaking typically refers to a cheap clone of something successful. They can't pay you but they can offer you equity and experience. Fully equipped with no money or original ideas, you and the visionary will take down the company that originated the idea and their millions in funding.
