Although I knew about the importance of shipping early and often, I let my co founder drag his feet so long I ran out of money. Now I have to go get a job. Listen to those who say it: ship now, ship often, don’t wait, validate early.


  • Sorry to hear that. As a startup, your most valuable assets are time and money. You need to work like crazy until you have traction. The sooner you’ll validate your idea, the fastest you’ll get revenue.

  • Gosh. WHat a hard way to learn a lesson, but sometimes it’s the only way. I screwed up many times too. I had to close business because I want organized enough. But, it has been an amazing journey. I am now back to doing something new, this time with a renewed understanding.

    Oh and don’t worry. I took a job and quit in 10 days. lol . I can’t do the 9-9 slave job anymore.

  • At one point I took the lean startup methodology to it’s next logical conclusion, and launched without my partner’s permission.

    It’s better to ask forgiveness than permission, I say.
