EP 044: The Raw Hustle – TIKD p1

This episode is a bit different than others and for those loyal listeners who’ve noticed I’ve been publishing less episodes recently well this is the reason why – I’ve taken on an operating role in TIKD, the company I covered in EP 038, so am now deep into startup life.
 
I thought it would be valuable for Miami entrepreneurs and hustlers of all types to put ourselves out there and hear our raw story, so here we go . . . this is TIKD at about 1 month, give or take and we cover some good stories here like . . .
 
Blowing money on an overseas developer and switching to a US-based one . . .
 
Why we’re frustrated with the first version of our product – and why that’s OK . . .
 
Our “only in Miami” moment of getting scammed by a print vendor . . .
 
How we went too big, too early, what we learned along the way but how sometimes it still pays to be aggressive and make things happen, even if the outcome isn’t perfect.
 
What you’ll hear a lot of in this episode is the realization of that daily grind setting in . . . where we face resistance, that blank canvas everyday.
 
We’re sharing our raw startup story right here for the benefit of all Miami hustlers, so have a listen, learn from our mistakes, and then start taking action – sometimes that’s the only way to learn.
