Bootstrapping Responsibly

Bootstrapping Responsibly from The Startup Garage

Usually, the most successful bootstrapping entrepreneurs are those that take a close look at their spending habits – both personal and business expenses – and cut out anything that is superfluous. However, many entrepreneurs make the mistake of cutting or forgoing key expenses such as health and life insurance.

Whether you are a single, young, healthy individual or a mid-life married individual with a spouse and kids, your (and your family’s) health and well-being should always come before the business. Life’s big risks, such as serious illness, permanent disability or early death, should not be ignored in exchange for your startup’s longevity. Cutting these costs is not considered lean or bootstrapping – it’s irresponsible.
