Finished Reading Reality Check

Finished reading Reality Check by Guy Kawasaki. The subtitle for Reality Check references outdoing your competition, but in reality the majority of the book focuses on getting a startup off the group. If you can forget about the irritating overuse of “bullshittake” Reality Check is useful book. The book is caulk full of do’s and don’ts in regards to presentations, budgeting, forecasting, hiring lawyers, and networking. One of the most useful topics in the book is Guy’s discussion on common startup mistakes. If you can learn from these mistakes the book will more than pay for itself. In addition, Reality Check contains a lengthy section on getting venture capital. I recommend this book to anyone looking to start a business.

Reality Check

I began programming in C++ when I was in college. Odd for a business major, but hey I am a Dork. After college I got a job as System Administrator. As a System Administrator I was in charge of web administration. My journey as a PHP web developer had begun. Since that time I have gained an in depth knowledge of CSS, Javascript, XML and MySQL. With changes and advances to technology I have also began learning AJAX. I started Blue Fire Development to do freelance work in my spare time.
