Tim Joins up

Wow.  It’s been a year and 2 days since I announced I was leaving Yousendit.  Time apparently flies when you’re hacking for fun, travelling, playing ultimate frisbee, and spending time with your amazing family.

But in the new year I started to amp up the energy on a new startup idea.  Like anything, it’s been a roller coaster, but it’s trending upwards, and I’m becoming more and more excited about the opportunity most every day.

Today is an extra super awesome day as Tim Fletcher has joined me as a cofounder.  An awesome product focused entrepreneur and developer; and perhaps more than anything an awesome human being.

We want to be the type of company that’s fast as hell at iterating towards product market fit.  Until we achieve that … we have nothing.  So a guy like Tim, able to understand the customer, able to build product, and able to get it in the hands of users to test (“test” not to find bugs, but to test assumptions).   is gonna accelerate us iterating until we nail it.

That said, we’re continuing to round out the team.  I’m not sure you can ever have too many of these types of people – product focused builders who take a ton of pride in their work, who work really hard, and are great human beings.

Yet another opportunity to plug my favorite speech and piece of incredibly simple advise in the history of incredibly simple advice.  “If you work really hard, and you’re kind, amazing things will happen … I’m telling you … amazing things will happen.”
