The many hats of an entrepreneur

So, I spent the last six weeks or so writing Ruby, Javascript, HTML and CSS code – on LocalFoody – and now have to switch hats completely to focus on:

  • traffic acquisition
  • promotions/pr
  • business plan work
  • pitching investors
  • attending events
  • building out the content database
  • figuring out how to get my mobile apps built
  • attending to accounting stuff

etc, etc etc.

This is the life of a bootstrapping startup. It is never boring, but often overwhelming and whiplash inducing.

If you are anĀ entrepreneur how do you manage it? I would love to hear your tips.
