Life is short BUT startup life is long, so you have to laugh when you can, and allow failure to be part of your process.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 21, 2014
“Fail fast, fail cheap and fail happy” are the guiding principles of “Secret to Startup Failure,” a brand-new book by Sonia Lin, now available on Amazon. With a deft combination of humor and sage advice, “Secret to Startup Failure” focuses on promoting work-life balance in the startup world and the sense of humor required for long-term success.
“Life is short BUT startup life is long, so you have to laugh when you can, and allow failure to be part of your process,” Lin said. “Some of us are crazy enough to keep on trying and keep on failing as we live our dreams, try new things and make a go of the startup world. This book is designed to offer practical advice, been-there, done-that stories and a little humor to make the whole process more enjoyable.”
Also an entrepreneur and developer, Lin is the author of “EntrepreNo’s: Secret to Startup Failure,” a webcomic series illustrating the lack of work-life balance experienced by most people in startups. Lin previously founded a Chicago-based startup that won a Google-themed global business competition and has been profiled in an international Google commercial; she was also named a Ten Outstanding Young Persons finalist for her active role in the startup scene, further inspiring the “Secret to Startup Failure.”
Suitable for any phase of a startup, “Secret to Startup Failure” offers tips on:
- Surviving a less-than-successful launch day;
- Figuring out yourself before you figure out the finances;
- Finding productivity from the garbage can;
- Selecting a co-founder who offers politics-free companionship;
- Making a difference even when things are challenging;
- And more.
“This book doesn’t teach how to code or run a business. It’s about sustainability and learning how to be happy with what you’re doing, and hopefully do it for a very long time,” Lin added. “If you’re thinking about starting a new business in the new year, this book can give you both insight and motivation along the way.”
