We're laying the foundation for a strong company culture at my startup, ribl. Here's what we're doing and how our mission and core values are aligned. Would love your thoughts.

It's early days for ribl and we haven't quite forged a definitive culture yet, but we're seeing some underlying cultural themes and core values emerge.

Hey all, check out my new blog post for ribl:

The 5 little things we do every day to make progress on our ‪#‎startup‬ http://ow.ly/Ml8bk ‪#‎grind‬

With so much media coverage about startups from tech pubs like TechCrunch to TV shows like HBO’s Silicon Valley, it may seem like running a startup is all about glamorous product launches, huge rounds of fundraising, and overnight successes.

But the overnight startup success is an absolute myth.

In reality, running a startup isn’t glamorous at all, nor do overnight successes ever happen. Rather, startups are full of repetitive tasks that need to be done each day and small steps that need to be taken consistently over a number of years.

Here are some of the tasks that we grind through each day to keep making incremental progress on ribl.
Startups seem glamorous but in reality, they aren't at all. Running a startup is full of repetitive tasks and small steps that happen every day.
