Startup: two months recap

One month after I took my first step to start my new adventure, I wrote a quick recap about what I’ve been up to. In keep with that tradition, I figured it’d be cool writing up a recap for month #2.

When I left Zillow, I wrote down some simple goals for myself:

  1. Become a well-known blogger
  2. Have a successful startup in a year
  3. Get in shape and Lose 40 pounds

And here’s what I’ve done to work at those:

  • Goal #1: Blog
    • Started this blog. Recently bought zealoustiger.com – there’s nothing on there yet, I’m trying to figure it out. Stay tuned. :)
    • Setup my girlfriend with her blog: www.jpharm.wordpress.com
    • Setup and starting to blog on EggSprout: www.eggsprout.com/blog
  • Goal #2: Startup
  • Goal #3: Get in shape
    • I’ve kept up the 3 mile run/day. It’s starting to get easier now.
    • Been eating less and healthier – it’s way harder than it sounds.
    • Lost 20 pounds already. That’s 50% to the goal!

Everyone asks me how much I work. You can see my day’s hourly breakdown in the one month recap, and it hasn’t changed since then. Still about 12-13 hours of work a day, 7 days a week. But seriously, when you’re working for yourself, it isn’t work at all. I’m learning SOO much, having so much fun, and lovin’ it.

There’s not much there right now, but hey, it was exciting when it went live. :) Lots of stuff happening behind the scenes to try to get the beta launched asap, but in the meantime, check out the eggsprout blog. I’ll be splitting my blogging efforts on both of these blogs from now on.
