Monday Entrepreneurship and Business Links #1

Last Updated on

You might know that I write a weekly newsletter on Fridays. Besides interesting articles that I found during the previous week, I also update on what I do, from time to time. So, if you’re not a subscriber yet, what are you waiting for? Go here and subscribe.

This being said, though, I will add the links in the content of the newsletter here, on the blog, as well, on Mondays (I send them on Friday to the subscribers).

Here’s the first Monday links – and the almost 50th newsletter. As to the structure, I comment on 2-3 links that I think you should read if that’s all you have time to read and I add more for the people that have a little bit more time.

Until then, though, here are some links to articles I read last week:

1. 50 Things You [Probably] Forgot To Design

A great list of things you should remember to design/structure when starting a new site. Or when you want to improve an existing one. I forget most of these things all the time, so it’s nice to have a reminder handy.

2. Pomplamoose 2014 Tour Profits (or Lack Thereof)

It’s the first time I’ve ever seen a revenues and expenses list from a mid-level band. Not the Aerosmiths and Rolling Stones, but the people that sing because they love it and they almost make a living out of it. It was interesting for me and, hopefully, interesting for you.

3. Cap tables, share structures, valuations, oh my! A case study of early-stage funding

A good primer on what everything means. I wish I found this when I started to raise money for MavenHut. I had to go to a friend and stay on his head for 4-5 hours to learn all this shit :)
