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.
