  • How to do everything right


    Many startups are obsessed with the idea of doing "everything right". Reading corporate history for companies like Apple, Amazon and Microsoft just fuels this need even further.


    We read about the perfectionist Steve Jobs, who wanted packaging to be as good as the product himself; how he obsessed about the physical appearance of the Apple computer and forced the engineers to find ways to implement what they thought was impossible and what he thought was necessary; no compromises were made and he came out with the perfect product.

  • What is the best that can happen?


    When I just started my company, I remember thinking: "If I can just bring the company to the point where we make a $1,000 a month, I'll be happy. Revenues are most important for a boot-strapped company and once stable revenues start coming in, I'll know exactly what to do next." A thousand dollars seemed like a dream.

  • What Will Your Startup Look Like When It Grows Up

    One thing that many startup founders worry about, is what the startup will look like when it "grows up". Steve Jobs was obsessively concerned that Apple will end up looking like 'IBM'. Like him, many founders look at the established startups in envy: Facebooks looks a lot like Mark Zuckerberg; Amazon looks a lot like Jeff Bezos; Google is the image of Larry and Sergey; Microsoft is still very much in the image of Bill Gates; and the list goes on. How can we make sure our startup grows up with the right culture, behavior and characteristics?
