I got completely burned out and depressed to the point of not even getting out of bed due to a huge legal battle with ex-cofounder that dragged on for a year. Took another year of going through the motions but not really moving the company forward to get out of that funk.
Because we hit product market fit very early, have great unit economics, and low churn (many of our customers have been with us for 2+ years) I feel obligated to jump back in and push hard. If I push hard on marketing I believe I can get profitable in 3 months. I’m scared that I will put myself in a situation where I am forced to hire employees (huge headache) or bring on a partner (i’m extremely cynical and distrustful at this point).
If we bootstrap we will have to pay back a convertible note. This is overwhelming to me.
Is it ok to quit even if business could be viable?
