Pivoting and Shutting Down is for Losers!

If you can’t come up with a good enough idea to stay the course, then don’t bother!!

Most of these new ‘tech’ ventures would do good to pivot towards shutting down before they ever even launch, instead of wasting everyones’ time and money on playing start-up games.

[Edit: This brief, hopefully sobering, post is a reactionary statement to all the ridiculous retoric (‘advice’) and speculation constantly going on about tech startups and was further prevoked by my reading of the following ‘duh’ article, http://blogs.wsj.com/accelerators/2013/01/03/prove-it-pivot-or-shut-it-down/]

    When a startup tells you that they’re pivoting, read as, “We completed f*cked up.” Pivot is the newest way people have framed their mistakes and spun their alchemy to change their turds into gold. A pivot generally results in a company transitioning their product into an entirely different product or they would pull a complete 180 from their prior beliefs.
