Brad Feld is a prolific VC and blogger whose blog I read religiously. He had written a great piece at the start of the year “Give before you Get“. The important take away from this post is being aware of the practice of giving without making it transactional. This is much harder than it appears because most of us are wired to give with the expectation of getting something back in return. When we remove this expectation along with the thought of what is in it for me, it becomes a lot easier to give generously and genuinely!
