The thing with dreams, or at least the dreams sold in the bulk of startup media is that everyone being written or talked about is doing great, numbers are never discussed and profitability is assumed. This startup founder fell for that trap hard.
The age old conundrum, you really want to leave that well paid corporate gig and create something your own from scratch. Sadly these types of adventures cost money – sometimes lots of money.
If you are anything like me, and you are still in that startup phase where you are just figuring things out, you are operating lean and spend your time being a bit of a nomad about town, you will probably agree with me that carting multiple devices, books, pens around in a backpack gets really old, really fast!
