A continuously evolving reference-style guide to startups, addressing everything from one-woman freelance consultants to multi-million dollar software companies.
By Jason Cohen: Someone who’s been there, three times.
My blog is an edifying way for me to tell stories, expound on my philosophy, and disseminate advice, but it’s not a good reference. If you want weekly inspiration, the blog is great, but if you need a complete guide to hiring your first employee, you need information today.
That’s the purpose of this guide: A reference-style collection of thoughts, tips, and philosophy, both my own and those of people I respect from around the world.
Table of Contents
- Taking the leap: Yes, self-employment totally rocks
- Sales without sales: Everyone is a salesman, yet no one is.
- Hiring employee #1
- The “Chasm” — fact and fiction
- Epilogue: It’s impossible for this not to be awesome
