And my next company will be something wayyy out there -- probably so far out that I can't get funding because it's too risky. The only reason I can do that is because I sold my first two companies very early on and I have just enough financial wiggle room to where I can, for now, take some risks. I see companies like 37Signals making safe, predictable product bets and leaning on their brand and existing customer base for income, and that's fine. But the world needs risk takers, too. And taking risk requires capital and if that means selling a couple of companies before they turn into empires, then count me in! If I were to do it all over, I wouldn't change a thing.
