There is often the expectation that first-time CEOs will come pre-loaded with all the necessary experience and skills required for the job because they have typically had a successful career to date. In the eyes of others, they may make it look easy and appear to ooze confidence, but as a first-time CEO, there is still so much to learn.

5 hilarious but true principles of remote work for startups
Welcome to the era where your office can range from a beach in Bali (yes, I've been there for almost a year!) to your grandma's attic (and yes, I've seen that happen, too). I'm part of a remote-first company, a concept that often raises eyebrows since it's a venture capital firm.
