Building a Business Sucks and It's Worth It
My goal from the beginning was to make at least $100,000 a year. Okay, that's not true – I wanted to be a rich and famous rock star.
Instead, I built a pool website. I still wish it didn't take 14 fucking years though!
But it did. And every step was important. If I didn't go through them, I might have blown all my money on a mansion in Florida in 2008.
Instead, I bought a modest condo in New Jersey in 2008. And I still got screwed.
I got fired, laid off, and collected unemployment. I'm glad it all happened. Without those moments, I wouldn't be where I am today – in my home office in Boulder writing about becoming mildly successful.
I have no regrets. I fucked up and fought my way through. And the best moment was when my mom stopped asking me when I was going to get a "real job."
