Startups That Win

8 03 2008

There was a big uproar over Jason Calacanis’ post on how to save money as a startup (rebuttal here). The statement that invokes the ire of bloggers everywhere is “fire people who are not workaholics”.

And there are plenty of responses. I read TechCrunch’s Duncan Riley and Michael Arrington‘s responses. David’s 37Signals response takes the polar opposite “fire the workaholics”. If you are so passionate about your work that you’d rather do that work than watch TV or hike, then that’s what most people key in on as the core of the people you want for your startup.

Summation: Love what you do, work like hell, treat it like the game that it is, have fun, play to win (and contact me for a job ;-)).
