How I started up BASIC
Starting up your own company is like saying your going to run a marathon. Dedication is everything, thats why you do what you love. Training to run a marathon is like laying down the rules that your company has to follow. Building your product you are planing to sell is like running the distance and being discipline enough to finish your task is like eating the right diet for your training. When you release your product it is like the starting of your first marathon all the experience you gained from your training is put to the test.
Do not let anyone tell you it is easy. I wake up at 5:30 am and go to bed at 10:30 pm, do not waste time on sleep. Always think years ahead, because by the time your idea hits the main stream it will be years from when it was an idea. Never say its the best, always improve your ideas. Stay away from the media.
