Everytime I’ve tried to turn a project into a startup it has eventually failed. Why? I’m not sure really, but I have a hunch. It’s not that I didn’t try hard enough. Because I did. I worked mornings, nights and weekends. I talked to strangers on the streets, tried to stay lean, iterated and iterated. So what’s my hunch? I think that the problem is that I took a job at the same time, every time, not allowing myself to focus.
Why did I do this? Well, I needed money to eat and get a roof. But this time it’s different. This time I’ve saved up. This time I have a roof. At least for a couple of months. So this time I’ll give it shot, and so should you. You owe it to yourself.
