So, it is possible …

Earlier this year, when I was a start-up co-owner, I was trying all sorts of different ideas on how to keep web oriented technology company alive.  One of the ideas along the way was cheap and fast web design, using well-established platform (yes, you guessed it right, WordPress).  This one was among my favorites …

Eventually, the start-up didn’t survive.  And I am not much sad about it.  It was a fair try and I learned a lot from the experience.  But that idea … I liked it so much that it was painful to see it die.

Today, I learned that the idea actually works.  And not only it just works, but it’s a base of a successful business.  These are some good news for me – failing to implement a good idea properly sounds less silly to me than trying to implement a broken idea.

  1. Hi Leonid, I’m sorry to hear that your business didn’t work out. It’s definitely a great business plan and there’s no shortage of demand, but it’s taking a decent chunk of cash to get the brand in front of the potential customers. I wouldn’t have been able to make this business work without the capital I’ve raised as a freelancer, that’s for sure.

  2. Hi Chris,

    you’re pretty fast :)

    Thanks for the tip. Yeah, I sort of realized that. I was short on funds too, and needed to start bringing in cash fast. That turned out to be a bit harder than I expected. And from then on plenty of panic moves started to occur. :)

    I’m being much more careful with my new upcoming project…
