The Art of Bootstrapping

The Art of Bootstrapping

In entrepreneurship, it is not the end of the world if you cannot get venture capital. Without any funds from venture capital, you still could launch your product or services by bootstrapping your business. Guy Kawasaki has posted an article called The Art of Bootstrapping which talks this exact topic – how to pull off a sucessful bootstrapping business:

  • Focus on cash flow, not profitability
  • Forecast from the bottom up
  • Ship, then test
  • Forget the ”proven“ team
  • Start as a service business
  • Focus on function, not form
  • Pick your battles
  • Understaff
  • Go direct
  • Position against the leader
  • Take the “red pill

The Lifehack Show: How Exercise Slows Aging with Judy Foreman

In this episode of the Lifehack Show, we'll be talking with Judy Foreman about the major impact exercise has on aging, both physically and mentally.

Judy is a nationally syndicated health columnist who has won more than 50 journalism awards. She received a Master’s degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and was a Fellow in Medical Ethics at Harvard Medical School. Judy is also author of A Nation in Pain: Healing our Biggest Health Problem and The Global Pain Crisis: What Everyone Needs to Know.

Her newest book Exercise is Medicine: How Physical Activity Boosts Health and Slows Aging debunks some common myths about aging and shows that it is possible to reverse the effects we often think of as inevitable.
