Join us at the StartupMonthly Smart$ (SmartMoney) (November 12-15, 2012 in Silicon Valley). I am very excited to be asked to coordinate this program and it is shaping up to be an exciting line up of venture capitalists and angel investors who are significant in the startup ecosystem.

After I realized that the most underrated skill is asking good questions, I realized that I am not very good at it. I don’t ask for help enough because I don’t know what question to ask. And also, I worry the question will be bad and then the person won’t want to help me again.
So I started forcing myself to ask for help. Like, I put myself on a schedule. And the result was not so much that I got good help (I did) but what I really got was good at asking questions. Because I thought so much about it.
