Discussion on: Founder vs Employee

I've been an employee for a company for nearly 7 years with the intent of bootstrapping the company I want to build. While that might seem like a long time, it has helped me grow my own network, refine my ideas and get an understanding of an industry that I wouldn't have otherwise had.

This might sound like a bad thing but I see my company being a major part of my life - I want to spend a lot of time on it. While I still want to watch movies and see friends, I really don't mind the idea of spending the vast majority of my time working on something I love.

It probably is a little naive to think that way and maybe my view will change in time but for now, I'm looking forward to the future of growing my mini empire 😀
