Yes and No
One of the biggest struggles of new entrepreneurs is finding opportunities. So when opportunities come up, it's easy to say yes to them. As things hit their stride, there may be so many opportunities that it’s impossible to say yes to everyone, and deciding whether to say yes or no becomes the struggle. It's a good problem to have, but saying no can be really hard. We're realizing, though, that saying no to something is also saying yes to something else (and vice versa). It's never just yes or no; it's yes and no. This mindset has helped us make more thoughtful judgment calls.
