What’s the right metaphorical comparison to use when telling your team about new funding? This is my fifth one now, so I’m really fortunate to have pondered this question a few times.Well to start, you have a few obvious choices. The more basic part of the brain will inevitably picture champagne bottles (too decadent), fireworks (too cliched), or bags of money (too Scrooge McDuck). The reality is, I don’t want to talk about fundraising. I want to tell them about how the challenge just got harder. A milestone like this shouldn’t be about the money, it has to be about what you’re going to do with it.The best metaphor I can think of is a spinning class.
