Ring the Register !! – Run, Don’t Walk to read this one

If you are in a startup, it would be good for you or anyone to follow Mark Suster’s blog or on twitter, he shared many of his experience and critical thoughts on his blog, for the benefit of many people including us, at ichr. Mark Suster’s blog is at http://www.bothsidesofthetable.com/.

His most recent blog on “Why you need to ring the freaking cash register” he talked about getting real and do what a business do.

” But some businesses take time to find their magic. And I only know one reason companies go out of business – they run out of money.

Delaying going out of business gives you way more chances at product / market fit than any other strategy I know of. And if your ultimate strategy is a small sale of the business that recovers investment and puts some cash in your pocket – having more time to make this work makes a lot of sense. ”

Take the road less travelled…whatsapp

Some people wonder why whatsapp charges for the app while other similar apps don’t. The blog post here explained why they do it.

They believe advertisement are bad for you and me. That doesn’t stop 250 Millions people around the world from using the great app every waking moments, as reported by this WSJ report.

They focus on what they love to do best, creating the best crossed platform messaging app and SMS alternative in the world for you and me. They make a stand and live by what they believe (They don’t like Ads). Could they have done better if they adopt a more ad-friendly approach? I think so.

Thank you, Brian and Jan.

I end with the quote from their blog:

Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need.– Tyler Durden, Fight Club

SME and Startup Toolkits Bundle from e27.co

Bre Pettis via Compfight 

New businesses are launched everyday. I strongly believe that there has never been a better time to start a company.  The cost of launching a business continues to decrease.  The Internet has leveled the playing field so that very small players can reach millions of people as easily as the biggest companies in the world.

With lower startup costs and a vastly expanded market, companies today can reach unprecedented scale with minimal investment. There are also more help and communities of entrepreneurs on the web and in real world to help you.
