PostHeaderIcon Staying Motivated During Start-up

I just read an interesting article over at We’ve all heard reasons why businesses fail: poor economy, too much competition, the secretary was faxing out bids on the shredder. You know, all those “read reasons” that businesses fail.

But Jessica Livingston at Y Combinator has a different take on the reason start-ups fail,”They all fail for the same reason. People just stop working on their business.” While there may be different reasons for the lack of motivation that makes this happen, the eventual failure starts when the working stops.

Very interesting reading. Check it out:
