Day 1 – Starting a Startup

So today is the official day that I start working full time on our startup.  Due to unfortunate circumstances, the previous startup ran out of money and closed up shop.  Kevin and I started Nedieon a year ago and we were contractors for the previous startup.  With some bootstrap money in the bank, its time to get going on our little project.

Why a startup?  Well, our motivation is quite simple

  1. We hate cutting grass.  For me, its a 1.5 hour ordeal haha!  When you add distractions and constant fiddling with the electric lawnmower (aka avoid cutting the power line problem), it can easily be a 2 to 2.5 hour time waster.
  2. Its a bucket list item.  Starting a startup is something that Kevin and I have been talking for almost 4 years.  After 4 years of research and preparation, we finally jumped in with two feet.
  3. Give back to the tech community.  Kevin and I have been in the tech industry for over 20 years.  We feel its time to give back and help grow the community.

Off to the race we go!!
