SmugMug was founded by father and son Chris and Don MacAskill. The company was started without any venture capital funding, and for a time was run out of the MacAskill family home. In a 2007 article, the LA Times wrote:
“They started on a shoestring budget in 2002, not moving into real offices in Mountain View, Calif., until April. Before that, the MacAskills and their employees set up shop in the five-bedroom home of Chris and his wife, Toni. Engineers bunked two to a bedroom. Blow dryers and vacuums routinely blew circuit breakers. Barking yellow Labrador retrievers chased tennis balls up and down the stairs.” www.smugmug.com
Positive Phil Rant:
raise your standards-
what your looking for and what you need is self discipline…self discipline comes from you..comes from self…
you are the problem… you are the solution. when you make a decision to be greater—to be more— make some choices. with new choices , new results…you have everything inside of you- high achievers have goals..what are your goals..wait…before you answer this….raise your standards… never give up. if you want something bad enough…you have to get it- its not easy—if you want it bad enough—you will get it..
it takes work- it takes discipline..it takes courage…it takes work- success is through strength and commitment- its hard- and its difficult- but thats the joy in it all
you have only one life—so don’t waste it-
have a vision in life,,its difficult to get someone if you don’t know where you are going….
