Hi folks. Perhaps some of you are wondering where the next part of your AngularJS on Rails tutorial is, and with good reason. I missed last week and I apologize but it won’t be out this week either. For the last six months I’ve been developing customer relationship management software for a startup I co-founded, 27 Volt Labs. This software, voltageCRM, is entering the beta stage.
For the first time we have people running real, production data on our software.
It’s exciting. It’s hectic. There are bugs, we fix them. There are new features people need, we implement them. There are blog posts that need to be written… but I fall behind. I must pick and choose my battles. I must needs choose my business over my blog. However, I will do my best to ensure that this state of chaos is short-lived and that the posts continue as scheduled.
For the second day in a row I’m up past 4am preparing for the users to hit the server at 6am. Last time I went to bed only to receive a call at quarter past six saying something needed to be changed. I think this time I’ll just stay up and keep working.
All this and I still earn far less than minimum wage. So this is what it’s like to be an entrepreneur.
