We're a week into the relaunched Epsilon Theory, and I've got mail.
I was wondering whether both you and Rusty have what Taleb calls f*** you money? Enough for yourselves and your needs and wants that you are not counting on Epsilon Theory to be financially successful in order to be happy?
Will you keep writing as long as you still have something to say, or if ET is not paying the bills like you expect will you shut shop and do something else?
Hahahahaha! Hooo-boy, that's a good one. Ummm, no, neither Rusty nor I has f*** you money. We are all in with Second Foundation Partners and Epsilon Theory, meaning that we are risking everything to make this work. Yes, we've secured enough funding to give us plenty of runway to make it work, but if we're wrong about the business model for Second Foundation ... well, then, we're wrong, and we'll have to pick up stakes and pursue our dream and talents in some other form. It's the same story as thousands of other start-ups and thousands of other entrepreneurs in America today, no better and no worse. And we wouldn't have it any other way.
