Remember where you’ve been. Know where you’re going.
I’d love to help your startup. That’s why I created my Swantastic Startups service on Voomly…
There are four basic benefits to subscribing:
- Private Q&A access: Email me specific questions about your business, and I’ll give it my best shot within 24 hours. I’m a pretty good resource and sounding board.
- 365 Startup Tips in 365 days: New tip every day. Some are quick-hitters/links, others are lessons learned.
- Expanded blog posts: You obviously like my blog. This is the only way to get more of it. Deeper dives into the topics, war-stories…all backed up with Q&A access to let you reply with your questions about your specific situation.
- Luck. I’m lucky and that shit rubs off.
I know you’re probably expecting to pay an arm and a leg for something like this. And you should be.
But the truth is, this is part of a larger vision for me….and I love interacting with people that want to #win….so it’s not really “work” anyway.
$29/month. Twenty-nine bucks. Not for long though…. the price is going up. Once you’re in at 29 it’ll never go up for you.
Though this is the first announcement of it, I’ve already had a phenomenal response from people that have stumbled on it… I’m really excited to be helping so many people build such a wide-range of awesome startups! It rocks.
So come on and sign up. It’ll be fun. I’ll help your business (current or future), and you’ll help me in my larger quest.
Let’s do it.
p.s. Don’t forget to sign up now for Swantastic Startups and get private access to me for 29 little dollars per month…the price is going up eventually.
p.p.s. Did you know that a good “p.s.” like that one can increase sales tremendously? See… that’s just one of the 365 startup tips of the day :)
Surround yourself with happy, lucky people. Avoid the unhappy and unlucky.
It’s all contagious.
Why say “or” when you could say “and”?
I’m a big believer in the power of voluntary restriction, because taking “and” to “or” can force some very creative solutions that lead to a blue ocean of awesomeness.
But I’m not a big fan of involuntary or assumed restrictions. Taking “or” to “and” can also create new opportunities that no one else has even thought of.
If the premise is “or”, change it to “and”.
If the premise is “and”, change it to “or”.
You’re spending WAY too much time trying to figure out how company A got its users, how company B got its funding, and how company C got bought out by company D.
Repeating the processes of other startups kind of defeats the purpose of a startup. You’re here to do something different, and you know where you’re going.
I know it’s important to learn and prepare. But the echo-chamber of startup land is getting nauseating.
Focus on YOU.
If you’re going to do it, you might as well go big.
The most likely scenario for startups is failure. But failing big is better than failing small. There is evidence all around us.
The most likely scenario for you is to win. Winning big is definitely better than winning small, and it’s actually not that much different.
Some can make a cogent argument that failing big is better than winning small.
I’ve had a couple of small/medium wins (yes I understand there is a lot of relativity in those statements). Looking back, I can see how they could have gone big. In fact, I could see it at the time…but for various reasons I wasn’t ready….bird in the hand, you know?
But now I’ve associated myself with some companies that are going big.
We found levers that worked and pushed them until WE were comfortable (personally).
They find the levers that work and just KEEP PUSHING harder and harder as long as they keep working for the business.
It’s really that simple.
Now I’m ready. So are you.
