Krishna, my former partner from Romulus Capital, recently published a post on the importance of knowing yourself to be a successful entrepreneur.

But the part that’s valid for entrepreneurs who want to build something that lasts beyond themselves is the question of whether you live to live or live to leave (a legacy). Both are perfectly acceptable ways of going about your life but great entrepreneurs tend to live to leave.
