Stress on Entrepreneurs? Try it without money!

The NYT's had an article on entrepreneurs, getting crowd funding and how it puts pressure on the company to deliver product.  As far as I can tell, crowd funding is great, I'm a big fan.  If you are going to make a product, at some point someone is going to get very stressed, at least, I always am.  I guess the spot light of a successful crowd funding effort, must be really bright.  Kind of like winning the lottery?

When I think back at what I was at 22, vs. what I was at 35, just can't imagine taking that multimillion dollar round, then having to play it out on twitter as a young guy.  By the time I was 35, I had seen much worse.

I can imagine prototyping here in Carbondale and trying to raise money by crowd funding very easily.  I'm planning on it.

Of course, your comments are welcome.
