In this cray cray VC driven world, there is a swear word.

Lifestyle

Here it is used condescendingly in a sentence

“That deal isn’t going anywhere, it’s a LIFESTYLE business. Both Roelof (Botha) and Marc (Andressen) passed. I hear Ron Conway might chip in but he’s at the all star game in NYC w Larry Chiang.”

As my mentee re-mentors and reminds me…

as I always say, @Justin_Wilcox, you can’t make your accountant and your VC both 100% happy. Fire the VC 1st #lifestyleBiz #launch2013 #sxsw

Tease the VCs for their Rolodex.

Tease like you’re Larry Chiang on date #3 and gotta make it 6 more dates before you put out.
