About the author

I've spent 7 years working across different design & product leadership roles studying the factors involved in startup success & failure.

I now apply that knowledge in my own company, Scribe, a journaling application my team have bootstrapped to profitability within 12 months, as well as with clients, helping them define a product vision, strategy & process of execution to help them achieve success & longevity.

I believe that work that matters comes from a calm, rational, honest & adaptive team, and that practices such as meditation or radical honesty within our team are more important than years of experience on your CV.

Why Your Startup is Failing

Learn how to be one of the 10% of startups that succeed

Build products that actually matter - and make a profit - by following a process I've used to bootstrap my own startup, Scribe, to profitability

Synopsis

You want your startup to succeed. Yet considering nearly 90% of startups fail, how can you ensure that you are part of the 10% that actually succeed?

In 2013, I started my first business. The first year, we nearly failed because of my ego & an unwillingness to adapt & listen to our customers. The second year, we did fail, despite an efficient process, investment & experienced mentors. I was left lost & lacking purpose. I asked myself why, despite all these supposed advantages, we did we still fail?

And then it struck me: That startups focused so much on process, applying buzzwords like “Agile”, but not enough on themselves. They focused on becoming more efficient, but not on delivering actually value to their customers and to their business.

After researching the factors involved with startup success & failure, my beliefs were confirmed; that approaching product decisions with calm, focus & objectivity was the foundation for making great decisions that delivered customer value &, ultimately, product & business success.

Driven by my desire to finally build a successful business, I’ve spent the last 6 years researching startup success & testing out this philosophy, now applying it within my own business Scribe, which we have bootstrapped to profitability within one year.

Unfortunately, I know that there are far too many founders & product leaders like me back in 2013, lost & unsure of where to turn to. That’s why I’ve written this book: I want to offer you a guiding path for you to engineer product - and ultimately business - success.

Why support this book?

  • Understanding the factors driving startup success or fail is essential to your startup's future
  • Most product/startup books fail to look at broader factors involved in startup success: objectivity, openness & robustness
  • Philosophy meets the hard reality of startup life, blending the wisdom of Ancient Greece & Zen Buddhism with modern product work
  • The future of work is different. It's vital to understand ideas like remote work & creativity hacks to optimise your day
  • Learn how to actually apply Agile and Lean Startup methodologies in practice, not just in theory

Similar titles

  • The Lean Startup (Eric Ries): An in-depth approach to building better products, faster, but narrowly focused on product process
  • The Messy Middle (Dan Belsky): A specific guide to managing the obstacles involved with managing large business & product teams
  • Escaping The Build Trap (Melissa Perri): How to apply Agile methodologies to focus on impact, not efficiency

Audience

For startup founders & product leaders looking to have more impact with their work and, ultimately, increase their chances of success as a product team & as a business

Atmosphere Press logo Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
