Thanks Heather! We bootstrappers just have to keep our heads down and keep plugging away. But a little encouragement is always good!

Great post! There's not a thing wrong with starting out from humble household beginnings. I always love to hear these success stories from small starts that blow up into big moneymakers. It gives me hope when I'm sitting in my living room, stewing over blog posts and tech specs, tinkering with tinkerables and planning my next moves. But a lot of "business people" (underlined, figuratively in Caps, and bold) laugh or worse just don't take it seriously that you can bootstrap you business in this way. They're all about the VC funding and big offices. VC money is great, but I'd rather put it into product development than into office space.

Thanks for sharing your inspiring post with the BizSugar community!
