Investors, VCs and product advice

From Slava Akhmechet’s startup lessons:

Most investor advice is very good for optimizing and scaling a working business. Listen to it.

Most investor advice isn’t very good for building a magical product. Nobody can help you build a magical product — that’s your job.

Or, to put it another way: VCs add a ton of value, but not as product managers.
