I finished reading Founders At Work by Jessica Livingston a few days ago. What a great read. For those who have ever thought of starting their own tech company or enjoy hearing about how great things come out of startups, this is a must read.
The book gives such deep insight into the inner workings of the minds behind of these companies. I’m inspired by what some of these people have built and in many cases, without any outside investment. It’s interesting to see that most of the founders had no idea what they were getting themselves into when they started. The startup mind set is so different from Corporate America’s. These founders had passion for technology and their products. It’s very refreshing to see how you can create a company without money being the main focus. Passion drives great companies.
I can’t really think of any job better than waking up in the morning and being able to say, “Today, I’m going to go build something that’s going to change the world.”
