Spin it all you like, you are not a market leader so don’t act or spend like one. We can’t tell you how many early stage companies flush with venture money try to market like leaders. These are usually companies whose leadership team has not worked in start-ups before and assumes that the battle and budgets should be waged just as they were in the corporate world. This is a disastrous approach tied to ego, inexperience, reading too many business books or both. The likely outcome is the rapid disappearance of all those VC greenbacks despite your followers and fans, your great press coverage, analyst reports and speaking engagements.

We are like someone in debt that continues to borrow money and keeps sinking even deeper. We can not keep this up indefinitely. Who do we have to thank for this? You guessed it our incompetent Government. Apparently the US Government has been tearing this country down for years without any plan for building it back up. They have only been catering to big business and big money. Doing favors for those contributing to their party fundraisers. Money first people second if at all.
In order to buy a new home wisely, you should carefully inspect the property you wish to purchase. If you notice any problems, make note of them and discuss them with the seller.
