It’s too dangerous to go it alone. You know this and I know this.
We achieve so much more together, as a team, than without one. Going “solo” sounds sexy and looks pretty cool on the silver movie screen, but, those are fantastical (but entertaining!) lies that we should never try to emulate.
My brother has put together something pretty special over at The Bitcoin Pub and it’s recently blasted through the 1M pageviews mark in record fashion.
Quite honestly, I’m stunned to see it going so well and the technology systems that are in place are holding up quite well – cloud services are pretty amazing when deployed thoughtfully and carefully…
Apparently millennials are 10 times more likely to delete an app off of their phone because of its appearance on the device (via comScore‘s latest Mobile App Report).
I’m not surprised at all.
I’ve been building software for a long time and with so many different people to boot. What’s fascinating to me is that there are just as many different ways to build software as there are products to build!
In other words, the systems and methods that can be used to build stuff are deep and wide, spanning from the super-simple to the super-complex.
True competitive advantage for a startup against other startups and certainly the incumbents is velocity and very little else.
A startup’s ability to move quickly with very little friction in any and all directions is something that the larger companies can never do.
Just 15 days ago I shared a new Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency community site that my brother was putting together and it’s been an insane 15 days.
The first day that the site was live it saw a grand total of 796 pageviews – not bad, not bad, right? I was impressed but I wasn’t even remotely prepared for what was to come.

One of the things that I’ve been incessantly obsessed with over the years as a professional is ensuring that I not only am using the best tools to get the job done but that I’m also reviewing the underlying behavioral mechanics that have driven me to choose one particular tool over another.
You see, there is a intimate relationship between my own natural behavior and the tools that I choose to use. The hope is, of course, that the right tool will exponentially increase my ability to execute and perhaps even automate that behavior without my explicit input.
My wife is an incredible partner, wife, and very, very patient friend. Some of the daily challenges that I have are around things that most neurotypicals do not think twice about.
For instance, my wife has helped create dress combinations for me since we’ve been married which has helped me look my best.
Theodore Roosevelt once said:
The only man who never makes mistakes is the man who never does anything.
I like that.
