Nine Tips for the the bootstrapping start up by Art Reisman

My good friend and local entrepreneur, Art Reisman, has written a thoughtful blog post with practical advice for the start up entrepreneur.  The title of the post is "Nine Tips for Organic Technology Start ups" and it's well worth a read because it has advice you won't get from most places, such as "Be leery of late 1990's dot com moguls."  Art has nothing against moguls I don't think, he just cautions that the new entrepreneur needs to be able to tell the difference between lucky and smart.  Some were smart, some where lucky.  By the way, that's the name of a book you might want to check out too - Lucky or Smart?: Fifty Pages for the First-Time Entrepreneur, by Bo Peabody

Check out Art's post, I think it is worth reading if you are just getting started and it is a good reminder for those of us who have been doing this for awhile.  Art has built a very successful company that is running circles around far bigger companies.
