“Failed startup,” feels harsh to say out loud. It took me a while to come to terms with it too.
Facts are, I am in the process of shutting down my first business venture called, SMSGoGo, Inc., launched in May 2013. My business partner and I had no idea what we were doing when we started it, but we wanted to try it anyways.
Starting and ending the business has been the most difficult exercise I have undertaken. The experience gained was invaluable, and with any luck, there will be some nuggets of wisdom that will help me with future endeavors. In the coming posts, I will be cataloging the good, the bad, and the painfully learned lessons of my first failed startup.
If you have any questions, reply in the comments and I will respond.
