“The oscillation you’ll go through as an entrepreneur, the highs are extraordinary and the lows, I can’t even begin to tell you how low they are,” Meftah said in a GGV Capital Founder Real Talk podcast. “And your ability as an entrepreneur and a CEO [is] to be able to ride those highs, don’t get too excited when things are going great, and don’t get too dark and morose when things aren’t going too great.”
