Diary of a Start-Up
Everyone loves the idea. The mission is simple: Add more pray to a woman’s day. I have umpteen ways to do it, and just as many ways to make it financially self-sufficient.
#1 Catchy Name #2 Business Plan #3 Talented Staff #4 Start-up Money – Check, Check, Check, and Check!
Website launches. The Daily Prayable is created. Everybody loves Prayables and the community grows. I figure it’s just a matter of time until we explode.
The numbers suck. I followed the advice of many, who say, affiliate advertising networks will bring in the most money. It’s revenue roulette. There must be a more reliable way to fund my mission.
A new approach is working for me: lean and mean. I’m operating in a 'mean-ingful' way. Our content is improved and we’re acquiring new subscribers organically. Next steps:
1. Offer paid micro-memberships
2. Publish and sell a killer e-book
3. Find two business sponsors
This start-up is inspiring thousands of women to discover personal peace through prayer. I’m confident investors will soon be knocking at the door to help us become even bigger and better. After all, like Jake and Elwood, we're on a mission from God.

like the equator or the lines on the highway.
Call my beliefs imaginary if you will,
but I'll take "pie in the sky" any day
over "life sucks, then you die."

The National Sleep Association says that 40 million Americans are not getting enough sleep. The first thing people do when they ...
