Prepare To Invest
I get asked often... “how did you find funding for your business?”
A series of events put us in a great position to launch.
Selling my house, savings and family loans provided the necessary capital.
We would repeatedly borrow from family and return their loan with 10% interest, plus shares in the company.
After a year, still broke, we continued to grind working for free.
Not until year 3 did we begin paying ourselves a real salary.
Starting a business takes every dollar you have.
Every ounce of relationship currency, every penny literally matters daily.
Offices, servers, phone systems, technology, hiring developers... We poured everything into the business and mostly still do so we are relevant in the next 12 years as well.
Despite the penniless struggle, we remained focused on building an amazing product from day 1.
That diligence 12 years ago put us in the amazing place we are today.
What level of investment and sacrifice are you willing to offer to make your dream a reality?
Realize, it’s going to be a long process of time and energy to really make something truly work, with intense effort daily, month after month.
SO… DON'T EVER QUIT!!!
KEEP PUSHING FORWARD!!!
