5 Reasons We Should Work Together
You made it here and seems you’re interested so here I go proving my value.
1) Nothing breeds success like failure.
That’s right, I have failed a lot. After many unsuccessful tries, On My Care is my first success story. It came at a cost. My wife and I working together daily long hours while having two kids. A person who has failed many times is far more valuable than someone who succeeds in the first try. Each startup was a learning experience. My startup SimplyMatchME (live at www.simplymatchme.com) wrestled with user acquisition & monetization. The takeaway is that I didn’t have a strong enough user acquisition strategy. It didn’t help that I did it all myself, rather than making it a team effort. At HashGo, we had a pie in the sky vision and experimented a lot with different games. In the end we failed because we never got traction on the games we built.
2) You need someone who thinks about problem first, solution second.
It’s easy to jump in and start coding right away but coding is the EASY part. Recognition of the problem and a good solution reached via a methodological approach increases productivity and reduces cost.
3) You need a critical thinker.
You are looking for someone who will give thought to your product. Who will engage with customers, take their valuable feedback. If you just want someone who is your code monkey, then no point moving any further. I’m NOT YOUR GUY.
4) I have succeeded
On My Care is truly the success story written after years and years of failed experiements. Main lesson learned, work hard WITH PEOPLE who know things you don’t know and have same commitment as you. I couldn’t pick anymore more committed to our cause than my wife. That will be my barometer going forward for a partner (if ever). My wife completes the other half of On My Care by being the clinical leader On My Care needs.
5) You want to up your tennis game and need a hitting partner worth playing with. I played tennis in college.
