We’re back with “Boo-strapped Web”. We’re behind the mic talking about stress, marketing, executing decisions, and guilt over new hire experiences. Lastly, we’re going over the latest news in startup financing, which could blow everything out of the water: rolling funds.

[tweetthis]“Audience is now a new form of power, it’s investing power. So if you have an audience and you take a stance and people believe in what you believe in, you can just raise your hand and now you’re a VC, yourself. If a fund can raise money this way, why can’t a startup?” - Jordan [/tweetthis]
