So true.

It sounds great on paper to get a pile of cash. But that immediately (and inevitably) makes PROFIT the number one motivating factor, instead of the (wonderful) motivating factor we have on team Socialexis: enjoying helping our clients, and enjoying our life.

I’ll take what’s behind door number 2, thank you.

Excellent article! Bootstrap is what I advise wannabe’s who waste precious time chasing non existent grants and who don’t qualify for loans.
Good old fashioned hard work, taking a second job and saving toward your dream is a foreign concept. Scale back your dream biz and start smaller. Be realistic. Don’t believe Angels and Venture Capitalists are going to hand you a wad of cash. They don’t fund the average Joe/Jane. It can be done, but you need to work for it!
