Not a single day goes by when I don’t regret my decision on that day. It all started on the day I decided to dive into the world of entrepreneurship & quit my comfortable day job. I had other co-founders whom I placed immense trust in. When I quit, we were ready with our product & needed to launch it (having got our idea validated initially !). Our team was perfect, perfect enough to land an investor to invest into us. I even acquired few of the early clients for our initial launch.
But things fall apart, when I realized their intentions. Seems like they were not fine in coming out of their comfort of quitting day job & start working for this thing full time. I never insisted that anyone quit their jobs & start working with me full time. All I expected was sheer completion of their responsibility, which they also failed to do.
For them, it was just side project & only I was the only one working seriously for this thing (having given up my day job).
Later, when things started moving forward, there was need for others to work full time as I was alone working here (we were located in different cities). But none turned up.
Later, I found out that no one was ready to come until we land investment. C’mon man! What the shit? Even investors would also like to see how committed the team is towards their biz. And here out of 4, only 1 was working his ass off day & night.
That was such a shock for me, as I never expected that…seriously…. And the result, the launch got delayed due to their carelessness, laziness (what else to say!!!) & we never launched. The clients I acquired got away … All the hard work & risk got flushed…. And here I am now, frustrated, lost… no job…nothing!!! Seriously I made big mistake in picking the right people to work with… Thats what they say, getting the right partners is as important as getting a good product for any startup to succeed….
I know this is long, maybe I just opened up what’s all going on inside … I am seriously lost now ui… Family members, friends all not happy with this… but what to do…….Honestly, I am completely ruined …
