It'd be better if your crazy millionare dads friend gave you a small loan for a million dollars to start up a business. This story sucks

Well, at least you're not role playing

No crazy stories here either
worked for a startup called Womply in sales
product was a very shit financial management tool for SMB's
perks were still pretty awesome

worked around a bunch of startups
constant talks of pivoting and people not knowing their business model
guy has a SaaS product for company approvals
has a couple of autistic azn's under him
they also don't seem to have a plan
he's very eager to talk to everyone because he hired programmers that are too stupid to talk to
business will probably be eaten up by a Slack update

remember I built website at 9 on angelfire that was doing extremely well
2k visitors a day
revisit the site and transfer to a dedicated domain/hosting
monetize the site
begin making ~$1k day from ads/affiliate products
decide to get coworkring space at a tech startup incubator/coworking area in my city to focus better on building the site (now a startup technically)
coworking space has common kitchen/lounge area with donuts/coffee/etc
start getting hungry one day and decide to go get a snack in the kitchen area
huge box full of donuts laid out on the counter look like they were just made at the donut shop
fuck yes chocolate w/ sprinkles
go to make my selection of the delicious tasty treat
all of sudden guy walks in and says
'sorry champ, those are for our meeting!'
takes entire box and walks out of the room
die on the inside, go back to my desk
