It’s a great idea to adjust your salary so that you can hire more talented people, extend your runway and send a good message to your investors.

Any founders who read this, I urge you not to go so low, so as to have survival and paying your rent problems. The cost of paying yourself so low, will be enormous stress and lack of clarity, at the expense of your company.

I feel this point has to be made, since I made this mistake myself.
