What's it been like being a transparent startup? Is it still a good idea?
"It feels less and less comfortable, and I don't know why." – Jon
"All people see is the revenue numbers; they don't understand what's happening underneath those numbers." – Justin
"Wait a second. Bootstrapped startups are different: the goal isn't to change the way people behave, it's to recognize where people are already in motion."
How long should you work on an idea before you quit?
