Do Things that Don't Scale -- The question to ask about an early stage startup is not "is this company taking over the world?" If you build something to solve your own problems , then you only have to find your peers, which is usually straightforward. For example, Ben Silbermann noticed that a lot of the earliest Pinterest users were interested in design, so he went to a conference of design bloggers to recruit users, and that worked well. [ 5 ]

Sci-fi movies are better when there are more nukes -- Gratuitous, oh, it didnt die" scene in the end, where a nuke didnt kill a Kaiju. I get you dont want to bomb cities, but why not have some unmanned nuclear smart mines that stick to Kaiju right after they get out of the bridge?

If you can do a business plan, and good PowerPoint slides, and get a few people excited, hire a couple guys who are willing to do front-end design, and maybe some back-end of your product, raise a little angel money just like the basics. The thing about influence is, when you help other people, they mentally think, Thats someone I owe. They dont think it externally, they just know. Handwritten note I always say thank you.
