For my startup, I spent $3 million so far and kept it lean, with just 3 people. Don’t hire unless you actually need to and there is ROI, very relevant

The startup growth calculator is a great visualization tool, but imo it's too simplified because it assumes costs is fixed. Unless the business does not have variable costs, business costs increases as businesses ramp up. So the calculator may cause you to be over estimate the runway you have.

I started a vending machine business last year as a side job while I am employed to a corporate world. Now I rely more on my earnings in my vending machine business. Such a good idea to start one.

I rated this video on YC Startupschool as transformational. Don't know why this lecture is not on my curriculum since they've updated the platform, but i came here and watch it again and take notes. As i'm about to get a pre seed funding . Gold content lecture. Thanks Kirsty. Thanks YC. Thanks to Internet. Courage in your journey dear friends founders.

Why is the cost of user acquisition higher later on, when you have brand recognition, a better and more known product (social proof), favorable reviews, etc?
