Bootstrapping? Don't Bet It All
Inc. Magazine - over 3 years
Sure, put some skin in the game when you're starting up--but not so much that it skews your ability to think rationally. Building a business with your own money has a romantic ring to it. After all, it saves you the heartache of having to hand over a big chunk of what you build to some investor. But bootstrapping asks a lot of you, the entrepreneur: For a while anyway, every dollar that comes your way must go into the company, not your pocket. So if you're thinking about finally acting on that brilliant idea you've been sitting on, know this: bootstrapping is not for the undisciplined. It's not for the crazy gambler, either.

In real news, Viacom's lawsuit against YouTube is back on, Sky News has been dragged into News Corp.'s hacking scandal, and Keith Olbermann shocks us all by suing Current. The Daily Dose: Now that Comcast is on the verge of allowing its subscribers to watch HBO Go on the Xbox 360, the sole remaining holdout is Time Warner Cable. Apparently there have been high-level talks between the premium network and cable provider, but there's no imminent solution in sight. Which doesn't appear to make sense, since TWC still gets paid regardless of whether I watch through its cable box or the game console and it already a ...
