So I started about 6 months ago looking into venture capital. There were a couple reasons for it…but the primary reason was I knew HireAHelper would need more time and money than I have. I’ve been torn on what to do about it for a while…
That’s a bit scary. It’s not that I base everything I do on what Godin says, however I do try to run everything through a Godin filter. What would Godin do? (WWGD?). I’m in a predicament if I keep going on this company part time, while trying to balance a new wife, do 40 hours programming and project managing at LewisTech (my current job)…and then spend what I have left on HireAHelper. I have a feeling that if this keeps going, it will be another year before I finally launch.
So my thoughts and conclusions are this: While I may be skipping the “Rice and Beans” Godin refers too, I can’t afford to keep letting competitors with inferior products pollute the market before I even get mine out.
Sorry Seth. On this one I’m going to have to go with Kiyosaki’s advice. I’m taking the money and going live.
