I've been in different startups for practically 20 years now. Don't go
into it thinking you're going to be a bazillionaire from options. Get
options, but get paid too.

You'll have a lot of fun, you'll work ridiculous hours, you create
great things, you will push yourself and learn a lot, you'll make
lifelong friends, and you'll cry when they tank. But overall you'll not
regret it.
