Some people already have impressive track records. Awards, money, exits, TV appearances. All impressive stuff. It can be envy-inducing. But…
Have they peaked?
All that track record stuff is in the past. Relevant, yes, but not as relevant as where they are going and the motivation and ambition as yet unfulfilled.
Is it better to invest in someone ‘lower down the mountain’ but still on their way up or someone much higher up but who is perhaps on their way down?
How do you discover if someone has already peaked? It’s not obvious. You need a process, a strategy. What’s yours?
