August 3: I Failed. Do, Learn, Adapt and Repeat Differently.

  I am mothballing my ServiceChat startup experiment.

July 12: Traction not tractors

Traction is vital, getting early customers to commit to using what I’m offering is very important.  Both are vital and important for my finances and startup growth, sure – but mostly for my sanity.

July 9 – Back away from the code, slowly.

  Every passing day re-affirms my fear.  I have to back away from the code, close the IDE – quit doing what I love doing and start doing the other thing.

June 26 – Disheartened

I’m sitting here not really wanting to do anything else but code.

June 20 – Mikey’s back!

The last 13 days Q: Does a daily blog have to be done every day?

June 7 – Dizzy with pivots.

Yesterday(and the previous 2 days) The last few days have been like driving in a tunnel, with occasional pauses to check the map.

May 30 – It’s Been Emotional

Yesterday Watching the data stream in and seeing the emotions and needs that generated it has itself been really emotional.

May 27 – A Squeak of a Week

Yesterday Last Week!

May 21 – One mountain’s peak is another’s base.

Yesterday It’s been a weird few days, my exhiliration at releasing ServiceChat is tempered by a realisation that the mountains left to climb are even higher than that of getting software built (which is really just a molehill!) Oh young whippersnapper founder, hear me well – software is the easy bit.

May 17 – Been Focused on Making Art

The last three days No, I haven’t been abducted by aliens.

May 14 – All Set!
