Making the sale
A founder’s mantra:
Be careful what you wish for.
Starting a company is a constant exercise in pitching. ‘course creating anything, for anyone, anywhere is an exercise in pitching.
The interesting part about being a founder with no capital is that there’s a lot of creating (on paper or in your imagination), and then pitching. And then waiting, building and pitching.
Hearing the customer say “Yes we want it!” warrants a 30 second celebration, until you start to realize that it’s time to figure out how you’re going to actually deliver. (This is where that capital comes in handy, and if you don’t have it, it’s time to exercise that creativity muscle again)
In the end, no matter your audacious goals, big, hairy or otherwise, what would you do if you got what you wished for?
Onward and upward, always.
