You have to win them over.

You really need to develop a network of people who win when you win. If you get users, then everything else follows. Basically any technology can be copied, any concept can be copied. In my opinion, what makes one of these companies valuable is the users.

That can't be copied" -- Mark Fletcher Founder of eGroups and Bloglines "I am not a hunter, never have fired a gun, but I'm told that if you want to shoot a duck, you have to shoot where the duck is going to be, not where the duck is. It's the same with introducing technology: if you're only focused on the market today, by the time you introduce your solution to that problem, there'll probably be several others already entrenched.

Because we're both engineers at heart and that's every engineer's dream - to build something that millions of people will use. They get a spec book, and they say, "Well, I'm going to meet this spec to make the customer happy.

It's hard. The people who were really good software engineers were usually great writers; they had tremendous ability to organize their thoughts and communicate. The people who were sort of average-quality programmers and had trouble thinking about the larger picture were the ones who couldn't write.

You've always got to do it two or three times to get it right. And things always go wrong. So persistence is the key to success. I had seen that in my career.

See a Problem?

I had seen that in computer design projects. With The 4-Hour Workweek, on the other hand, when I finished I had a list of 20 specific action items to work on the next day. The book is half inspiration and half instruction manual. The second half tells you how to go about launching a startup and getting to the point where you can work just 4 hours per week, if you choose.

The dirty secret is that hardly anyone chooses to do that. All these books go together. The takeaway is all about customer development, or letting customers tell you how to build your product or service.

Then get feedback, and change your product based on the feedback. Throw it out there again, get more feedback, make more changes, and keep up that cycle.

Especially useful advice for any web-based company. Founders At Work is both, although I would say more weighted toward inspiration than technical instruction.

Founders is a series of interviews with successful entrepreneurs, primarily from the 80s and 90s, although there is a smattering of newer blood in there. There is nothing quite like hearing the stories of founders directly from their mouths. They give you the details of how their businesses got started, how they went out of business, how they overcame challenges, the arguments they had, the deals they won and lost, and the lessons they learned along the way.

If I could recommend only one book to a new entrepreneur, this would be it.

The Single Founder Handbook

And in case the author ever reads this--Jessica, please write a sequel with another crop of entrepreneurs. When I got to the end I wanted more. What about you?Details if other: You've probably worked at a company with an American culture, in Japan.

The Single Founder Handbook provides a roadmap for minimizing the risks involved in building a business by leveraging your knowledge of software development and learning from the mistakes that are common across many bootstrapped entrepreneurs.

Or did you set out to create a business, only to find that you've created a job?

I remember talking to a co-founder of a successful company and he said if he ever left, he'd love to run a small engineering team at a company, take a salary, and leave some of the aspects of running a business to others. Here's the entry:
