That Feeling When You Raise $100,000 For Your Startup

Last week I was fortunate enough to raise $100,00 for my business. I’ve known I needed more cash since March of 2014, but as with most things in life, timing matters.

I had to be able to tell a credible story to investors to get the cash I needed. Thankfully, the fourth quarter of last year was good, which made it possible for me to raise the money.

Gratitude is My Attitude

Above all else, I’m extremely thankful to get this done. I’m thankful for my wife, who has stood by me during really difficult times.

I’m thankful for my family and the support they’ve shown on this entrepreneurial journey.

I’m thankful for my friends, many of whom have stepped up to help in unexpected ways.

And I’m thankful for the many strangers who’ve also helped.


And I know for sure, persistence is way more important than patience.

Keep hustling.
