Becoming formidable

As a startup founder, the idea of pitching was always compelling. I just knew that if I could get in front of the right people, I could personally persuade them. So when I was getting ready to pitch FlighCaster during the 2009 YCombinator demo day, I knew it was my time to shine.

When I got up to the stage, I was able to tell a story and wow the audience. In fact, one of the other founders told me afterwards that he felt like I could sell anything,

It was a good moment.

Nice read from the 42 floors guys that has useful advice for any new startup.
