Most days are not that glamorous or interesting in a start-up. However, even those days come with lessons learned.
For example, I learned this week that the guys that have been customising my website without any issues are completely clueless when in comes to security and search engine optimisation (SEO). In fact, they’ve stuffed something up, and now I’m spending way too much time trying to fix it with them.
I’ve also learned that when you sign up for a new company bank account, they do not come online right away. So, don’t promise payments to a manufacturer on the same day.
While I procrastinated on this for a while, I’ve learned that making my career change public opened a whole new set of great contacts into my network. Furthermore, I’ve said “YES” to connecting with anyone another friend has recommended. I’m sure that was a good decision too.
Finally, today I learned that it’s worth my time to create good content for both my websites and my own personal brand. A Medium article I published was recommended by their editors, and I’ve been invited to submit more articles to two of their publications as a result.
Yes, a Day in the Life of this start-up is all about doing small things daily and learning quickly from any lessons. I’m certain this will all be worth it one day.
