Too many viable companies die, bankrupt from technical debt, when it is completely unnecessary. Want to avoid their fate? Before you write a single line of code, know what the best practices and "right" way are, then each and every time you depart from them, document why and assign a dollar value of technical debt. Accumulating debt isn't a problem as long as you manage it and stay ahead of it.
I used to hate Mondays. Like a good entrepreneur, I re-engineered my world to solve my own problem, and now Mondays are my favorite day of the week.
Being a startup founder is a source of stress, anxiety, and depression. Why don't we talk about managing that the same way we talk about managing blood pressure?
I love talking to aspiring entrepreneurs, tech people, and just about any other kind of person. I open up my calendar on Mondays for mentoring, chatting, and anything else people need. Grab some time and let's walk and talk!
