How to Bootstrap from a 4-time founder

A compilation of my bootstrapping essays


I've written a lot of articles around bootstrapping. It's what I built my reputation on. In fact, I've sold three bootstrapped companies over the past 15 years. If you're looking to build your startup without raising any money, you should read these essays. If you have any questions, please book time with me.

What else is good?

You are! :)

Since ’03, I’ve started four successful startups.

When I was 11-years-old, I built my first Internet business. Since then, I’ve had three successful exits and my current startup: Podia. My specialties include product, user acquisition, marketing and design, but if there’s anything you need startup-wise, please contact me and I’m sure I can help.
