Consulting while bootstrapping


Zvi Band offers a very useful list of problems and preventive measures to deal with the entrepreneur who is bootstrapping and having to consult at the same time to bring in capital. Distractions, time, and what he calls the “biggest flaw” is when you hit a rough patch while consulting and the seeds of doubt begin to grow about your entrepreneurial ventures.

Some remedies:

Break up both consulting work and internal startup work into manageable chunks. That way you can mix both together in a day.
In true GTD style, write down what you need to accomplish before you start your day. It’s at that planning stage where you can put thought into how you want to balance your day.
Don’t check email so often.
Hire other people to work with you. Task one of you with with client work, and the other with internal product.
Keep track of your financials. How much consulting work do you actually need to take in this month?
