Well recently I took the plunge and started my own tech start-up after years of thinking about it. So I have been battling the usual things that many start-ups face I guess.
Of great help are inspirational talks such as these.
First is the talk by creator of Ruby on Rails - David Heinemeier Hansson at Startup School 08 where he talks about how to create a successful start-up.
Next is this talk by Walter Bright where he talks about how he started the programming language D, and he describes the way he works.
My journey has only just started. I would love to discuss some of the issues that start-ups face and how I am trying to solve the ones I face.
