How Transparent Should I be With Staff?

If most early-stage Founders were being completely transparent with their staff, their company updates would probably look something like this:

"Hey everyone, good to see you all on Zoom. So my quick update is this — We don't know if we have enough runway to make it to our next funding round. Also, I'm getting a lot of personal emails from folks saying they don't see the vision anymore. And personally, I don't really think this was the right decision for me or my family. So.. who wants to lead with OKR updates?"
