Quote of the Day

“…By solving a problem that you have, you, by default, have passion for the idea. And you need to have passion for the idea, because a startup will overwhelm you; it sucks your entire life away. Your friends will leave you; your dog will leave you; everybody will leave you. It’s the hardest thing you can do. So if you don’t have passion for it, I don’t think you’ll succeed.”
Bloglines founder Mark Fletcher, talking about the passion required to do a start-up, yes, any start-up, even the ones that don’t get sold for $25MM or more.
