“I will rather glory in my weaknesses..” Those words baffled me. How could someone seriously boast in his weakness? Aren’t weaknesses detestable, even shameful?

Recently I’ve founded two start-ups. But to put honesty in its place, I really couldn’t label us as a “startup” yet. We’re still at the infancy stage: A fetus waiting to be born. We have no investors, no capital, etc. We just have us, a company of hackers, businessmen, and entrepreneur-wannabes, working for free towards […]Read More How I’ve Founded Two Start-ups
