Startup And What It Takes To Succeed

Interested in quiting your job and building a startup? Here’s an interesting comment I found at a website whose owner did the same and is now spending time reading / thinking / discussing with other about what it takes to succeed.

I respect your long and thoughtful blog post, but to be honest, the first sentence of your blog post tells me that you will fail miserably. Instead of spending “a lot of time reading / thinking / discussing with others about what it takes to succeed”, you need to focus 110% on building a growing positive cash flow and profits.

Trust me, when you’re forced to return to the cubes as someone’s W-2 wage slave after falling into a deep depression due to failure, you will regret having wasted so much time blogging, socializing, facebooking, twittering, IM’ing, and web surfing for “the answer”. I’ll tell you the fricken answer, and it is simple: You’ve jumped off a building and you need to build your plane (profits) on the way down. Any minute you spend not doing this will be to your severe detriment.

Quite an insightful comment. Read the original article from here.

      Poogymom, who are you speaking to? You are spouting the recuitment and fundraising line published in all the NTM materials. You certainly have no personal knowledge of what it is like to basically live it. We have lived it and we all saw things. Maybe you should lecture the NTM leadership about what the Bible says. We all know it, after all we listened to it being preached to us at least 3 times daily whilst at boarding faculty. Having said that, knowing and doing are different things, and my experience tells me loud and clear that the NTM leadership I grew up with did not practice either the fruits on the spirit or the many other things the Bible teaches, such as friends and family structure, the priesthood of your believer, protection of children, discipline of believers (perverts and molesters), the authority with the government, etc. The leadership I knew, could are actually referred to as white washed scepulcure (sp?) or grave that has each of the legalistic whitewash but stinks to high heavens of filth and rotting flesh.

    7. It is my belief that mesothelioma is definitely the most dangerous cancer. It has unusual properties. The more I actually look at it the more I am sure it does not work like a true solid flesh cancer. If perhaps mesothelioma is often a rogue virus-like infection, so there is the chance of developing a vaccine and also offering vaccination to asbestos subjected people who are vulnerable to high risk involving developing upcoming asbestos related malignancies. Thanks for discussing your ideas on this important ailment.

      Also, I’d personally recommend having a presence on sites like Linked In.
