Didn't know marketing

Didn't have contacts nor investment
Talk to me, babe
Sharing is caring

Focus, focus and then some
Don't multitask
The more hats, the less credibility
Focus drives the team together

Is this helping me succeed?
No: F*ck it.
Yes: Try to merge it.
Just Do It
Want a team? Try this:

Sell MVP while it's being built

Bootstrapping, no investment

Sales from day one
Kick your sales guy out of the cave...

... and lock him out.

(Feed him from time to time)
You need:
Business cards.
Elevator pitch.
Dress accordingly.
These help:
Good content
A website
Be your own company
Corporate values

Communicate accordingly

Learn to say NO
What if you fail?
Learn from that

Never give up

Share with others
And most of all, whatever you do
Have. Fucking. Fun.
