  • Why the Lean Startup Approach might be Wasting your Time

    The lean startup approach has affected millions of entrepreneurs and their startups. Our startup, for one, also adapted it. Build, measure & learn. Drawn on Snapchat It’s how you get from the assumption, to building it out, to tracking/learning from the data.

  • No, Your Startup Doesn’t Have to Scale Right from the Start

    As founders, a lot of what we choose to do gets scrutinized. This is especially the case when we take in investments and new partners.

  • Startup Lessons: Stop Fearing the Wrong Things

    I was in a conversation among my team members and the topic of “fears” was brought up. From there, I heard different things, from fear of the company failing, to one of the founders quitting, to Facebook funding a local competitor and going against us… I’ve tried my best of the past year (we’re almost a year in) to squelch those thoughts and it seems to have paid off for the most part.

  • Startup Focus: Less Fluff, More Focus on Business Impact

    Whether it’s about your project, your startup or your school work, we all go through this issue in life. We always try to do more than we actually have to.

    I see a lot of new people nowadays in the startup scene that give the weirdest advice. Sometimes, I really think some of these guys haven’t even tried being in the trenches.

    I got asked this question recently on Snapchat. “I have just started my Startup. I’m not sure if I’ll need to start free or just start charging right from the start.” That’s a pretty awesome question! I’ve heard that question before as I’ve asked myself that multiple times.
