Working in Public Is Hard

The ability to work in public is probably in the Top 5 challenges I’ve had to face in the last several years. I’m not talking about going to Starbucks with a laptop and working for several hours while people watch you work. I’m referring to building something new and working on it in such a…

The 21 Days Before My SaaS Launch

I find it fascinating to get a behind the scenes look at how entrepreneurs do the things they do.

It’s About Starting, Not Finishing

One of the more common challenges that many people have emailed me about over the past few months is the problem of motivation.
