Overheard at Wal-Mart: Respect Your Elders

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Kid1: “hey, respect your elders, yo!”

Kid 2: “But I’m older than you…!

Kid 1: “Yeah, but I’m your UNCLE!”

… good point, I guess :p

Starting a business: Finance it with SALES!

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Here’s a short-but-good post from Fred Wilson on how to get financing for your new business.

Many new entrepreneurs think they should start out at a certain point – say, with a DESK (ha, a luxury!). Salary is also a luxury :p

If you start your business from nothing, you shouldn’t be looking for, say, $50,000 in start-up capital for things like a really nice desk, a lease on an office, and other things which are revenue-producing.

Fred says many entrepreneurs get their initial money from friends and family.

Why not get your initial capital from selling something to a customer?

After all, you are going to have to do that eventually… might as well start now :)
