Hello, my name is Eric and I’m an entrepreneur.
It’s been one week since my last Startup Weekend. Since then I have had 8.5 hours of sleep and 274 cups of coffee. I had a doctors appointment yesterday and he said my blood type is French Roast.
I have used the words “lean,” “validation,” “pivot,” and “equity” more in the last 7 days than in the previous 34 years.
My wife and kids have declared my sanity M.I.A.
The local Starbucks lets me close up and lock the door on my way out.
I have a team of ROCK STAR designers and developers, and we will build an amazing service for our customers or die trying. They take my crazy ideas and the impressive pictures that I drew on a white board, then churn out code like a machine! I’m usually good for a laugh and have the company credit card, so they let me hang with them. But I know that they are the ones that make the magic happen.
At the end of the day, all I want is to stand back and be able to say, “Hey, you see that? Isn’t it beautiful?? Yeah, that didn’t exist before, but we built it.”
Until then, I’ll have another grande non-fat caramel macchiato, my reserved seat by the window, and a free public wi-fi connection..
