my best advice for bootstrappers? don’t be romantic about how you make money: transactions. make a google analytics dashboard highlighting total transactions for the day. then make it the default on your browser. then do nothing but things that might move that number. KISS, yo.

When an investor is naturally interested in a specific industry, is responsive, and has a positive - man it’s so great! To those great startup investors out there - thank you! Trust me - founders might not say it enough - but they love you.

I'll say it: there are too many investors and not enough founders/operators. I'm glad there are now numerous smart investors and abundant capital. But we are in an operator drought, and we'd be better off if more investors got back into the game.

People think startup founders know what they are doing. In reality... We experiment until things work. We hope no one notices our lack of expertise. We're constantly searching for people who can do our tasks better than us.

The biggest myth in marketing is that great products sell themselves. You still have to get out there and sell them.

At @niradotcom we just released our first study on employee security practices. The data confirmed our suspicions with a few surprises. nira.com/employee-secur…
Just wrapped up a report on employee security practices. Sneak preview: - Taking docs from former employers is the norm - Personal email accounts get added to work docs more often than not - A large portion of former employees can access cloud docs even after leaving a company

Soon, there will be more NFT projects than there are startups. And then we will start calling them startups too.
Once an investor has an idea or opinion in their head about your startup or category you are in, it’s nearly impossible to change their mind without irrefutable evidence. This is one of the most challenging aspects of raising money and communicating with investors.
The majority of investment decisions are irrational.

API design is user experience. An approval workflow in Slack is user experience. A lead generation form on the marketing website is user experience. User experience almost always starts outside the typical boundaries of a product UI. That’s where your design also starts.

When I raised money for my first venture backed startup, a multi-time founder with several exits told me never to celebrate funding rounds or congratulate a startup when they raise money. She said it means that the bar for success is higher and that isn’t something to celebrate.
I like to fund & grow businesses. 👋🏻 I’ve invested in 1,000+ founders, started/failed a few biz & I’m currently bootstrapping to $40M annual rev (& beyond). I’m starting a video podcast on business, investing & *real* tactics for both. Hit reply, what do you want to know?
