Tren is an extremely androgenic hormone, and as a result well known for promoting androgenic side effects. Hair loss and acne in men who are predisposed are both possible. Body hair growth is also possible. If you are not genetically predisposed no amount of Tren on earth with cause these issues. The androgenic side effects of Tren are truly based on genetic response. When it comes to hair loss, if you are predisposed to male pattern baldness, meaning at some point you’re going to lose your hair regardless of steroid use , Tren is one of the fastest ways to ensure you lose your hair a little sooner.
Virilization is a serious androgenic side effect of Tren. It is very difficult for a woman to use Tren without some level of virilization and makes it a steroid that’s almost never recommended for female use.
Important Note: The 5-alpha reductase enzyme does not metabolize the Trenbolone hormone. This means 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasteride will not affect the androgenicity of the hormone.
I have already written a post on what Gurley meant and intended when he wrote this essay on the lifetime value model. In my blog post https:///2016/10/14/a-half-dozen-more-things-ive-learned-from-bill-gurley-about-investing/ I discuss issues like the game on the field problem. A “growth at virtually any cost” mentality can be dangerous and deadly for a startup. There is no hard and fast formula that determines the right level of paid spending on growth. High customer acquisition cost can quickly become uneconomic. The benefits of hyper growth eventually start to reflect an S curve most notably when the benefits of a network effects start to decline. At a point an additional user of a system no longer generates the same benefit it did when the company was smaller and had fewer users. For example, an incremental new user when you have only thousands of customers is worth far more than when you have millions of customers. Growth is still important but hyper growth driven by an outsize paid customer acquisition cost is no longer financially supportable. The goal of a business at that point should be greater organic growth driven by the sticky and viral growth engines.
