I’m laying in bed fighting the covers. My mind is drifting to the realization that I am launching Workado this morning.
Last week I talked about how I messed up the beta of my Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product launch.
Disclaimer: I went back and forth on if I should use “Fuck” in my blog post title or something more “approriate”. However, this blog is not meant to be a ‘professional’ blog nor am I trying to generate business from this blog. I’m just wanting to connect to other founders and startups to share my experiences. So I decided, what the hell. If I offended you, I’m sorry…sort of.
No, I don’t plan on doing this for every book I read. But every once in awhile, a book comes along that completely changes your outlook on something.
I have always been curious to see how other entrepreneurs and startup founders spend their time and what they’re working on.
I prefer the definition given by BusinessDictionary.com of bootstrapping:
Building a business out of very little or virtually nothing. Bootstrappers rely usually on personal income and savings, sweat equity, lowest possible operating costs, fast inventory turnaround, and a cash-only approach to selling.
Everything is mapped out. The content strategy and 30+ blogs have been written. Target guest blogs have already started to get posted. The marketing website is up. I have mapped out 125 different growth hacks (which I’ll be posting soon). I’ve seemingly planned everything I can.
Before I became a startup enthusiast, I played poker. I actually played poker “professionally” for about a year. That year was filled with a lot of lessons that I’d be able to take with me. I didn’t realize so many of the lessons would relate to business at the time, but I can look back now and definitely say it helped shape my approach to startups.
