How stealing pancakes got me to potentially sourcing $70M

I was talking to my grandmother recently and she reminded me of a sweet moment from my childhood—something to do with pancakes that I had no memory of.

Apparently she used to make me pancakes, and then what did I do? I grabbed a pancake, ran down the street, and happily shared it with the neighborhood kids.

Then, without hesitation, I rushed back to her for more, repeating the cycle of giving her pancakes until she realized that a little girl like me couldn’t possibly eat that many pancakes.

This pattern of redistribution of resources from point A to point B isn’t just a childhood tale. It’s a theme that I uncovered together with my therapist in my therapy sessions. It’s also the driving force behind my commitment to education, where I teach dozens, sometimes hundreds of students for free every year.

Fast forward to today, a startup that’s raising funds approached me and asked me for $70 million. I don’t have those millions now, but I have far more in resources – billions of dollars, to be exact.

I’m able to bake an endless stack of metaphorical pancakes and pass them on to those who need them most, and I can make a significant impact globally.

Why did this startup contact me? Let’s break it down:

  1. My personal branding
  2. The way I spread my message
  3. My strong networking skills
