I’ve just read your post on how to know when to leave your startup on VentureBeat, and I wanted to ask you a question, if you don’t mind.
We completely bootstrapped our start up for 1.5 years. We’ve got a beta product, about 5 companies using our product successfully, and over 600 companies signed up to try it.

The problem is all three of our co-founders are at financial and emotional exhaustion and the two married ones including myself at marital exhaustion.

We are working to raise seed round, but we keep hearing that we don’t have enough traction just yet (paying customers will be highly desirable) and our runway is only a month at most. At the same time, we don’t want to give up, because we get a lot of very position reviews from people signing up for our product.

I was wondering if you might have any general advice? You seem to be able to raise money, do you have any advice in regards to that?

Thank you so much for your work! I have found your advice to be extremely helpful in my job searches.  Please keep up the good work!

I have an interview this Friday for a job that I badly want.  The recruiter just called me and said that they were intrigued by my resume and want to meet me but are concerned that I might be bored with the position.  I am curious how you suggest responding to such a question if it should arise in the meeting Friday.

Thanks in advance for your response.

I recently lost my job and am at my wits end. My nerves are shot and my anxiety is high!  I was encouraged and inspired by your blog and postings. However, when money is an issue and bills are mounting, how do you stay focused enough to pursue other interests when so many other matters seem to take precedence at at time like this???
