Glad you’ve been enjoying the podcast, Bob! And you’ve made a great point. Maybe “addiction” isn’t the best word. “Passion” fits much better.

Also, you’re right that sometimes it’s related to skill. Starting a company is a skill like any other, and, since you’re constantly developing the skill in one company, might as well keep using it in the next.
