r/TheBeginning

r/TheMiddle

r/TheEnd

Takeaways

  • Don’t fall victim to the sunk-cost fallacy. Ohanian and Huffman spent a year working on My Mobile Menu and had to decide to abandon it in a split decision.
  • Surround yourself with advisors you trust. With the proper advisors, Ohanian and Huffman probably would not of prematurely sold Reddit.
  • Enjoy the journey. 15 years past between Reddit’s founding and Ohanian’s final exit.
