Incredibly good article from Aaron Hillegass outlining why starting a company is a bad idea even though he did it (and so did I). One of my favorite lines is this one:
I’ve been broke, and being broke sucks balls. Having Enough is awesome. How would I define “Enough”? Enough means that you can take a friend out to a nice lunch and not have to worry about how much it costs. I have hung out with a couple of billionaires—my experiences indicate that being a billionaire is just incrementally better than Enough.
I have never cared about being a billionaire. I’ve only cared about this description that Aaron defines here. I just want Enough, too.
By the way, if you want to learn how to code for iOS and OS X, start at Aaron’s company’s site, Big Nerd Ranch. Their books are incredible.
