How to Build a Business: The Comic Book!

Eureka!

There's really nothing glamorous about being a startup entrepreneur while also being a wife and a mother. And when you're a hardware startup entrepreneur, "glamor" is especially antonymous — "slapstick" is a much better descriptor (and a story for another time).

I wrote a thing recently about my travails in the bizarro world of hardware manufacturing. It was pretty good, too — an unflinching, occasionally absurd account of what it's like to turn ideas into things.

But I much prefer the version my daughter, Amelia, wrote — and illustrated — a while back. Especially the ending!

I'm sharing it here in hopes that its youthful optimism will be contagious (viral is fine, too!) and inspire everyone to help make sure our Kickstarter has a happy ending!
