8 months ago I started a business with a good buddy of mine.

We were really, really broke.

Really, really desperate.

Blowing several thousands on Facebook Ads that did not work.

At all.

That was scary shit.

We got into huge fights about who made which mistakes.

And there was a lot to fight about.

Because everything was essentially broken.

So eventually we get out of that hole somehow and then actually have made some serious money.

But then, of course, we fucked up again and made some stupid strategic decisions to, again, end up in a really tough spot.

So now shit really isn't great at all.

So although we technically make money, since our obligations and responsibilities grew, we again are in a very bad place.

The only difference?

We don't fight anymore.

We're really quite stressed, don't get me wrong.

But there is a silliness to the situation.

Before, we would get personal about it and get really stressed, to a point where it would be quite unhealthy.

Now, things really aren't great.

But it's just not that bad.

Just because we sort of know it's not the end of the world, anyway.

We're quite confident that we can figure it out.

And if we don't, well, it's not that big of a deal.

Life will go on.

    @ag That's it, isn't it? With the kind of entrepreneurial experience you have under the belt, you're going to feel like you can start again from anywhere.
