Building a business or startup you care about (and what makes $$) is hard as hell.

It's even harder when you're working a day-job that pays the bills.

So, how the hell do people do it?

How do they manage their time?
How do they find the energy to come back after their jobs and puts hours and hours into their idea?
When do they know it's time to quit their job, or close up shop on the idea?

Let's talk about it and find some answers.

Almost Real Things

This isn't pseudo-inspirational struggle porn from people who were last doing this 17 years ago, these are tactics from the mouths of people who are currently IN the process of building their businesses. Just like you.

Come join us.
