Don't waste years of your life trying to build a startup
—and never get it off the ground.

If you're a developer like me, you've probably dreamed of building a startup for years.

Whether you're just thinking about building a startup today—or you've actually made a go for it and have fallen flat on your face—you should know that I feel for you.

Maybe you're looking to start a side project that can kick off some extra money every month. Or maybe you just can't stand working for someone else and dream of nothing but freedom and independence from a soul-sucking day job.

If you've been struggling to convince yourself to take that first step, or you've been slinging code for years on nights and weekends with nothing to show for it—I want you to know that I've been there, too.

It fucking sucks—seriously. It's not just you. I failed at this game for years. I've read countless startup books and started more projects than I even care to remember.

But guess what? After years of getting hardly any sleep at all, beating myself up, and constantly feeling like a failure—I found a way out.

And that's why I want you to know that you don't need to spend the rest of your life as a sorry, snivelling, frustrated, sorry wantrapreneur.
