REMINDER: Your side project or startup effing rocks

REMINDER: Your side project or startup effing rocks

So, there are you are. Sitting there banging away on some code. Or working out your strategy for how you’re going to move that side project along just a little bit more. Or just trying to tweak that one blog post a little more.

And everyone’s bitching about the economy. Or how this is a bad time to do anything “risky.” Or about the time you’re wasting. Or how you should be doing something else.

But you know this is the right thing to do. And you know what? You’re right. And you will get there.

This is why you’re an entrepreneur.

You’re doing the right thing. You’re doing an awesome job. I admire what you’re doing. I couldn’t be more impressed with what you’ve accomplished to date. And I can’t wait to see where you take this project next.

There’s no better time to be working on that side project. Or starting your startup.

So keep at it. You’re going to kick ass.

  1. Thanks, Rick. That actually makes me feel better.


    That and the fact that I’m the fuzzy out of focus person off in the distance in that photo of one @ctb up there at the top.

    So thanks twice. (:

    …and it helps to have this same attitude in your nonsexy nonstartup biz. Thanks for reminding me to keep it sexy. ;-)
