Startup #3: Consulting-Cases – founded 2 years ago, now making 1.000 Dollars a month

Have you ever tried to build your own business? Did you fail? Did you notice your failure too late? Welcome to the club!
I have built a lot of startups, and many of them failed (fortunately not all of them). Unfortunately I noticed most of the failures too late, after I spent thousand of dollars. Yeah, that’s painful.
