How's it Going?

I am having a good time. I am in the honeymoon phase of entrepreneurialism. We are just weeks away from launching our site/product. I can't wait to show it to you. But I have my orders from engineering: show the production site to anyone upon penalty of death.

I have had to give up some features to in order to meet our launch deadline. I have cleaned out my bank account. I am convinced we will make trillions of dollars and change the world.

This week I am working on marketing materials and conference appearances. This is stuff I love to do.

What keeps me up? The thought of building a business on a platform I don't entirely control (Twitter). We have a plan B. Hoping that my partners, who are putting in a Herculean effort for the big fat salary of $0, realize mega return on investment. I am humbled by their generosity and commitment.

I get emails and Facebooks and tweets every day with words of support and encouragement, as well as advice and resources. These little messages mean the world to me, and I am grateful to have such kind and supportive friends.

So that's how it's going. I'll share a sneak peak as soon as I can.
