I’m currently working on my own Startup, Gymbooth. When I wrote the poem, ‘Thoughts of a Creator’ (featured below) I was still in the Early Stage phase. Basically, still working on the idea and trying to validate it.

Now, several months later, we’re testing a first prototype with our first users! To be a founder is like being an artist. I’ve written many songs starting from the age of 16 and preformed them live. Just like in a band, a startup’s team is composed of great individuals who play in harmony and with “soul” together.

I wrote “Startup Poems” (a series of 6 poems) from the perspective of a founder and I hope that these poems will help your team create the harmony and the “soul” that is needed to build beautiful products.

 Below is poem #1 of 6 – ‘Thoughts of a Creator’. Check back next Friday to read #2, ‘Great Ideas’

Today is the day. There is no tomorrow.

I’d rather take the pain today and run away with it.

Away from habits, free of rules – guideless.

Lost in thoughts of beauty where I create, combine,

restructure and form greatness.

Out of nothing – Making it, slowly and steadily.

With the sum of all my experiences – intuition.

It is what I do – create.
