There are thousands of blogs, books, articles, magazines, and videos about starting a business. Why would you want to read this one?
One differentiating factor about Lean Business Startup is that it chronicles the real startup of a new Internet technology business, dbEasy.com.
I will apply each step of the lean business startup method to my own web database application service and let you know what works and what doesn’t.
This is different from a book written after the fact by an already established business owner. These types of books do have value and I will be applying the lessons learned of people who are already successful. But when you read the stories of Bill Gates and Paul Allen founding Microsoft, Jeff Bezos starting Amazon, Larry Page and Sergie Brin starting Google, and Mark Zuckerberg creating The Facebook, you always wonder, “Can I do the same thing or were these people just lucky?”
The truth is that they were lucky, but luck is something we can all harness, as explained in the book I am currently reading, Get lucky by Thor Muller.
I am a person just like you. I have dreams of starting a business and growing it to make millions of dollars, but right now I’m writing this post from the train on my way into my ordinary job that I have to work 40 hours a week to pay the bills.
If I can do it, then you can too.
